Napoli lawyer: 'It's an extreme and harsh ruling'.

Wed 11 November 2020 | 19:58

Napoli attorney Mattia Grassani cautions they will 'never give up' after the 'extraordinary harsh' FIGC (Italian Football Federation) advance decision on their relinquished Juventus clash.

The Gli Azzurri got one point deducted and the 3-0 triumph gave to

Juventus

after

Napoli

neglected to go to Turin for a Serie A match on October 4. 

Not exclusively did the FIGC appellate court reject their contention the discipline was ridiculous, the phrasing was considerably harsher in reprimanding Napoli for the whole circumstance.

“It’s an extremely stern ruling, extraordinarily harsh, that Napoli reject outright,”

club lawyer Grassani told RAI News 24

.

“The sentence is even harder than the first, and this causes a great deal of disappointment, because we thought that we had provided the evidence to convince the judges that Napoli did not refuse to play the match, but rather could not play it.

“From the reasoning given, there emerges patent unfairness that leaves everyone at Napoli indignant, from President Aurelio De Laurentiis to the kit staff.

“Napoli had no other choice in the chaotic hours leading up to the game, as we had in our hands the orders from two local health authorities and the Campagna regional assembly that banned us from traveling.

“Napoli will never give up. This ruling offends us and we will appeal to the third level of the justice system, which is the CONI tribunal, then eventually the TAR and State Counsel too.”
