Report: Complaint Submitted Against New Juventus President Jean-Claude Blanc

According to Ansa and Tuttomercatoweb, a complaint has been submitted to the Federal Prosecutor of CONI, the Italian Olympic committee, regarding Juventus president Jean-Claude Blanc.

On Tuesday, Blanc stated, "The third star will come to Juve from our next championship because Juve have 29 Scudetti, as we have written on all documents. Even if there is an asterisk to explain why two were taken away."

A star is present on a team's kit if they have won ten Scudetti. However, due to the Calciopoli scandal of 2006, two were revoked from Juventus and officially they only have 27 titles to their name.

The issue at hand may violate Article 5 of the Code of Sporting Justice. Blanc has been accused of issuing "public statements that damage the reputations of individuals, companies, or organisations operating under CONI, the Italian Football Federation, UEFA and FIFA."

It has not been revealed if further action will be taken.
