Juventus will appeal against FIGC's decision not to strip Inter of 2006 Serie A title

The Turin giants are not ready to throw in the towel just yet, and have vowed to continue their battle for 'justice and equality' as the Calciopoli scandal continues to drag on
Juventus have revealed they are displeased with the decision of the Italian FA (FIGC) to allow Inter to keep the 2006 Serie A title and will appeal the ruling.

The FIGC announced earlier on Monday there were no legal grounds to revoke the 2006 Serie A title handed from Juventus to Inter as a result of the Calciopoli corruption scandal five years ago.

However, Juventus have not given up on the case just yet, and have confirmed they will continue with legal action until what they describe as a 'fair decision' is made.

"The decision of today's Federal Council confirms a completely different treatment for similar situations," a statement released by the former Italian champions reads.

"The petition submitted 14 months ago by Juventus allowed for a deep examination, unfortunately not followed by any acceptance of responsibility by the sports bodies involved, who instead dismissed their political role as governance.

"It is understood that, in order to protect their millions of fans, as well as the shareholders and employees, Juventus must pursue the right and proper verification of facts while looking for treatment equality.

"Therefore, the club’s lawyers have been given the mandate to identify the best protection instruments in administrative and international law.

"Since today’s decision is far from providing equality and justice, Juventus want to assert all the internationally applicable rules at every relevant office."

Reports in Italy suggest Juventus will appeal against the FIGC's decision by taking their case to the the Italian National Olympic Committee (Coni).
