Juventus' entire board of directors have shockingly resigned from their positions, including president Andrea Agnelli and vice president Pavel Nedved.
A unanimous decision has been made by the board of directors at the Italian giants to resign en masse, leaving them in a state of flux amid the mid-season World Cup break.
Managing director Maurizio Arrivabene is set to remain in charge of his administrative duties despite also resigning, with the club set to fall into a significant period of transition.
The 2021-22 season saw a year of record-breaking losses published by the Turin club, with a £220million (€254.3m) loss registered.
The decision for a mass exodus from the board - which was front page news in Italy on Tuesday - was made on the proposal of president Agnelli, after the board agreed that it was in the best interest of the club for a new group of executives to take over at Juventus.
Agnelli wrote a letter to all Juventus employees in which he heralded 'extraordinary results' including the building of their Allianz stadium, as well as nine consecutive league titles for the men's team and five in a row for the women's side.
He also talked about the Champions League final appearances in Berlin and Cardiff and then observes: 'We are facing a delicate moment in society. Better to leave everyone together, giving the possibility to a new team to overturn the game'.
