(ANSA) – ROME, MAY 17 – The FIGC Court of Appeal rejected the appeal of the Federal Prosecutor on the capital gains case.
Furthermore, the Court declared the appeals presented by the companies Sampdoria, Parma and Empoli unacceptable.
The first level of judgment before the Federal Court had ended with the acquittal of the eleven clubs involved – including five in Serie A: Juventus, Genoa, Sampdoria, Empoli and Napoli – and 59 managers. The Federal Prosecutor directed by Giuseppe Chinè, after the publication of the reasons, had filed an appeal, supporting the validity of the model he had created to define ‘fictitious’ the transfer market operations finished under his magnifying glass, also comparing the values of the cards of the players in question also using the Transfermarkt platform.
According to the defensive thesis of all the accused clubs and managers, accepted in court, it would be impossible to determine exactly the value of a player in the moment of a private negotiation between two parties. (HANDLE).
