Juventus doctor convicted in doping case

11/26/2004

ROME (AP) - A judge has convicted a Juventus club doctor for administering banned substances to the soccer team's players during the 1990s, while acquitting the club's chairman, the team said.

Turin Judge Giuseppe Casalbore handed down a jail term on Friday of a year and 10 months to club physician Riccardo Agricola, while acquitting chairman Antonio Giraudo, the Turin-based club's press office said.

Prosecutors had alleged that Juventus players were regularly supplied with drugs, including the banned hormone EPO, during four seasons between 1994 and 1998. They had requested prison terms of three years and two months for Agricola and two years and one month for Giraudo.

The defendants had denied any wrongdoing. Defence lawyers had sought the acquittal of both defendants, arguing there was no evidence that players were given banned substances.

The trial involves one of Italy's most successful and popular soccer clubs. Between 1994 and 1998, the Turin team won three Italian league titles, one Champions League title and the Intercontinental Cup.

The decision comes six years after allegations by then-AS Roma coach Zdenek Zeman triggered judicial inquiries.

Zinedine Zidane, Roberto Baggio and Alessandro Del Piero are among the current and former players at the club who have given evidence at the trial.

Juve’s lawyer Luigi Chiappero said:

“The one raw point is Agricola’s penalty, even if it’s unlikely the Court of Appeal will uphold it. We will prove that Agricola did not commit any crime and the only thing he was charged with was the prescription of EPO

is it me or does that sound like a confession ? :yawn:

Hard not feel cheated.. just a little bit.

Glen's love is still pure and not at all clouded by a thin blissful film of self-delusion though. In a world of cynicism, this LOVE is to be applauded :proud:
