‘Bittersweet season’ as champions Juventus lose €89.7m
Juventus President, Andrea Agnelli reflected on Thursday on a “bittersweet season” for the Italian champions with losses of 89.7 million euros ($105 million) despite lifting a ninth consecutive Serie A trophy.
Agnelli told a shareholders’ meeting in Turin that the losses compared to 39.9m euros the previous financial year.
“The balance of the 2019-2020 season is bittersweet, both on and off the pitch,” Agnelli later told journalists.
“We have achieved great results, but also unexpected disappointments with two finals lost - Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup - which still burn and the Champions League last-16 elimination.”
