Juventus to appeal against 15-point deduction ruling

MILAN (Reuters) - Juventus on Monday said it would appeal to Italy's Sport Guarantee Board against a ruling that earlier this month docked the Serie A soccer team 15-point deduction in a ruling related to the club's transfer dealings.

Earlier on Monday the appeals court of the Italian soccer federation published the reasons for the 15-point deduction ruling saying the club was found guilty of serious, repeated and prolonged wrongdoing.

Juventus said in a statement that motivations published by the court were unfounded and illogical.
