Juventus have released a statement confirming that they intend to stand by youngster Nicolo Fagioli following his 12-month ban from football. The 22-year-old admitted to placing bets on football using illegal platforms, earning himself a 12 month ban from the game, of which five months has been commuted.
Juventus have since released a statement confirming that they plan to support Fagioli through his rehabilitation:
“The Club has noted the official press release from the FIGC n°177/AA and confirms its full support for Nicolò Fagioli in tackling this path, providing the player with the necessary support in carrying out the indicated therapeutic plan and, as expressly provided for in the agreement, collaborating with the Federation to outline the scheduled appointments. We are firmly convinced that Nicolò, with the support of the Club, his teammates, his family and the professionals who will assist him, will face the therapeutic and training process with a great sense of responsibility and, once the disqualification has been served, will be able to return to competing with due serenity.”
