Juve to appeal FIGC decision

Juventus have claimed they will appeal the ruling by the Italian FA (FIGC) to uphold the decision to strip them of the 2006 Serie A title.

Inter Milan were handed the title as a result of the Calciopoli corruption scandal five years ago and the FIGC announced earlier on Monday there were no legal grounds to change the original decision.

"The decision of today's Federal Council confirms a completely different treatment for similar situations," a statement released by Juve read. "The petition submitted 14 months ago by Juventus allowed for a deep examination, unfortunately not followed by any acceptance of responsibility by the sports bodies involved, who instead dismissed their political role as governance.

"It is understood that, in order to protect their millions of fans, as well as the shareholders and employees, Juventus must pursue the right and proper verification of facts while looking for treatment equality.

"Therefore, the club's lawyers have been given the mandate to identify the best protection instruments in administrative and international law. Since today's decision is far from providing equality and justice, Juventus want to assert all the internationally applicable rules at every relevant office."

Juve may yet take their case to the Italian National Olympic Committee (CONI) and look set to continue their legal fight for the foreseeable future.
