‘Give me the 19.9 million euros (about 28.3 billion won) that I didn’t pay you three years ago.’
Cristiano Ronaldo (38, Al Nasr) is preparing a lawsuit against his former team Juventus.
Britain’s ’90min’ reported on the 17th (Korean time), 바카라사이트“Ronaldo plans to take legal action against his former team Juventus over unpaid wages. He gave up a large amount of money to help Juventus balance its books during the past coronavirus pandemic. “I agreed to it,” the report said.
The origin of the incident dates back about three years. Ronaldo left Real Madrid in 2018 and wore a Juventus uniform. It was his first attempt at Serie A and a move that shocked the whole world.
Ronaldo swept the Italian stage. He performed outstandingly, scoring 101 goals and 22 assists in 134 games across all competitions. Although he failed to win the UEFA Champions League (UCL), which was his goal, he left his mark by sweeping the league MVP, top scorer, and player of the year awards, as well as the record for scoring in the most consecutive games in Serie A history (11 games).
Ronaldo’s partnership with Juventus ended after three seasons. He returned to Old Trafford after 12 years by rejoining his former club Manchester United in 2021. And he found a new home at Al Nasr, Saudi Arabia, after terminating his contract with Manchester United by mutual consent in November last year.
It’s already been three years since I left Juventus. But there was still some work to be done between Juventus and Ronaldo. It is the payment of overdue wages.
According to Italy’s Gazzetta dello Sport, Ronaldo agreed to a wage deferral at the last minute during his time at Juventus. This is because the club suffered great financial difficulties due to COVID-19, which hit the world at the time.
Ronaldo later agreed to receive 19.9 million euros. However, it was revealed that Juventus lied about the amount to reduce losses.
In the end, Ronaldo is even preparing to sue. He wants to receive the 19.9 million euros he has not received, and recently even requested related documents from the Turin Prosecutor’s Office. Now, a lawsuit is only a matter of time.
Ronaldo is not the first player to have a conflict with Juventus. Paulo Dybala also recently reached an agreement after notifying Juventus of legal action early this year. It is known that he received 3 million euros (about 4.3 billion won) in overdue wages.
Leonardo Bonucci, who left the team this summer, is also considering suing Juventus for damages. He is a legendary defender who played for Juventus for over 10 years, but left for Union Berlin after being excluded from coach Massimiliano Allegri’s plans.
Meanwhile, Juventus was severely punished for financial corruption last season. Last May, Juventus was deducted 10 points for being accused of intentionally inflating and manipulating the transfer fee in its accounting books, and as a result, it fell to 7th place and failed to advance to the UCL.
