Juventus had already held a shareholder meeting yesterday, and during the meeting Agnelli explained to shareholders that the club has nothing to do with Suarez’s cheating case and that taking the exam is the player’s autonomous behavior.
Shareholder Marco Bava asked Agnelli at the shareholders meeting about the relationship between the Juventus club and the Suarez cheating case. In this regard, Agnelli said that Juventus will not bear any responsibility in this case.
In response to this case, Agnelli replied: "Juventus has not organized the Luis Suarez test, and the club does not take any risk of responsibility. Juventus and Suarez’s test have nothing to do with Juventus before. It has been communicated to him in advance and made public the decision not to sign him."
Although Agnelli would not disclose too much of the details, he categorically denied that Juventus commissioned others to organize an Italian test for Suarez.
"The investigation is currently underway and needs to be kept confidential. The Perugia prosecutor has listened to the testimony given by Juventus lawyers and has clarified the relationship between the Suarez examination case and Juventus. The club has not commissioned a picture. Attorney Erke went to organize the exam."
In the end, Suarez was not signed by Juventus, but left Barcelona to join Atletico Madrid.
