Juve continue Scudetto claim

Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has vowed to take his club's case to the Italian National Sports Tribunal (TNAS) as they seek the reinstatement of their 2006 Serie A title.

The Turin side were relegated from Serie A and stripped of the Scudetto, which then passed to third-placed Inter Milan after AC Milan, who finished second, were also docked points.

Juve's counter-claim was based on fresh evidence given to a Naples tribunal last year which they alleged implicated Inter in the manipulation of referee appointments, the same offence Milan and Juve were found guilty of.

Agnelli claims the federal council were culpable for failing to investigate Inter at the height of the Calciopoli scandal but the Italian football federation (FIGC) did not pursue the claim on the grounds that the case's statute of limitations had expired. Inter deny any wrongdoing.

Agnelli, in comments reported by Gazzetta dello Sport, said: "Ever since we realised what the outcome of the exposition that we submitted 14 months ago (in Naples) would be, I have instructed our lawyers to develop a strategy to move forward.

"Juventus has trusted the fair application of sporting justice, paying the high price of relegation and taking a significant blow to our heritage.

"Today the football system, which stoned Juventus in the town square for two months in 2006, has itself been shown to be incompetent - a situation that is unacceptable to us.

"Everything is very much in our favour because we have nothing to fear by comparison with anyone else.

"But if this boardroom is used to cleanse the consciences of those who have acted in haste before, Juventus will not be an accomplice.

"We're prepared to open a dialogue, but we require calm before we come to the table.''

Inter president Massimo Moratti made light of Agnelli's claims, telling the same newspaper: "I hope he (Agnelli) goes on holiday soon so he can relax."
