Luciano Moggi, the former Juventus general manager, has responded to the recent case opened against the club by the FIGC prosecutor. Moggi was present at a recent match between Juventus’ primavera team and Napoli, which has caused the FIGC to investigate the matter.
Moggi claims that he simply went to the match with two friends and was let onto the field by an attendant. While on the field, he ran into Gianluca Pessotto, one of his former players. Moggi states that there is no reason for him to be forbidden from speaking to Pessotto and calls the investigation into the matter “stalking.”
Moggi is critical of the FIGC for sending someone from the prosecutors office to Turin to speak to Pessotto and not the attendant in Naples who let Moggi onto the field. He suggests that if he were in the position of FIGC president Gabriele Gravina, he would make the prosecutor pay for the expenses incurred in the investigation.
Moggi sees the FIGC’s actions as an unjustified overstep in the investigation and feels that it is a clear case of stalking. He also suggests that Gravina should be held responsible for any expenses incurred in the investigation.
