While the Italian Football Association announced a 15-point deduction after Italy’s most prestigious Juventus was found to have reduced its deficit by manipulating the accounting books, reports came out that Min-jae Kim’s team, Napoli, was also involved in a similar accounting irregularity. .
According to the influential Italian newspaper ‘La Repubblica’ on the 22nd, the Italian Football Association’s inspector general said that he was ready to request documents related to the suspicion of accounting irregularities committed by the Napoli club.
The accounting fraud pointed out by the newspaper is known to be related to Victor Osimen, a Nigerian striker who is running as the leading scorer in Italian Serie A in the 2022/23 season.
Osimen moved from Charleroi, Belgium to Lille, France, before the 2019/20 season, scoring 18 goals in 38 games in one season and moving the team back to Napoli next season. In this process, the Italian Football Association judges whether or not Napoli manipulated the books by understating the transfer fee given to Lille. 메이저사이트
When Osimen joined Napoli, European media estimated his transfer fee to be between 60 and 70 million euros (approximately 80 to 93 billion won). However, this is only speculation, and no one can know exactly how much Napoli paid Lille as a transfer fee, except for the club’s executives.
This report is unusual in that Juventus’ accounting irregularities may not end with one club, but may spread to other top clubs in Italy.
In particular, in the case of Napoli, it is expected to be another topic throughout this season as it recorded 50 points in 19 games in the first half and gave a green light to winning the championship for the first time in 33 years.
