Everyone against Allegri, we would miss us too. It is impossible to deny technical responsibilities that are there for all to see. We criticized him when he won, let alone now. But once more we say that he cannot be left alone in the disastrous moment of Juventusbecause an even more important role than his in the elimination from the Champions League and the exclusion of the team from the championship fight after not even a third of the championship has the president Lambs. And not only because it is formally right that the boss is also responsible for the results. Agnelli is also so in substance, not just in form.
Since Murphy’s Law is not an invention, when things are already bad, the rest is worse. And so in the lowest sporting moment of the last 15 years, the investigation of the Turin prosecutor’s office has arrived, which with its evidence can nail the club to another criminal trial. The accusations are many and serious and for President Agnelli, house arrest has even been requested (but not granted). For an Agnelli, not for any president. Perhaps it is not clear enough the effect that just a simple request like this can have. In Turin, then.
We have always thought that Andrea Agnelli is untouchable in the role of Juventus president, also because Juventus is an important satellite of the Exor galaxy, of which Andrea Agnelli is a significant shareholder. Family and condominium games that allow everyone to command their own home. But perhaps there is a limit to everything and the postponement of the Juventus shareholders’ meeting, initially scheduled for Friday and instead last week, postponed with a note to November 28. That something should or could happen in the meantime? Possible, probable. How is it possible that in Turin they knew of the imminent communication of the closure of the investigation, already a few days before it was there.
The financial management of Juventus is known to all: over 340 million losses in the 3 finished financial statements are the lens of the judiciary (which would have found another 200 in the meantime hidden), 254 in what will have to be approved on November 28th. All obviously covered by the shareholders. The Ronaldo deal, wanted by Agnelli. The technical zigzagging between Allegri and then Sarri, the Pirlo bet and the return of Allegri, with an off-market contract for our championship (and the club’s finances). No other choice is Agnelli’s like the last: a long-term project but with players sought and taken to win immediately. Madness. Even the controversies for the SuperLega become small, which certainly alienated Juventus (founding partner with Real Madrid and Barcelona) the sympathies of Uefa and beyond.
In 2023 it will be 100 years that Juventus has been owned by the Agnelli family and even for this alone it seems impossible to think that celebrations can be reached without an Agnelli in command of the company. We will see if and what happens, however, it is also right to remember that Andrea is not the only possible Agnelli.
