You'd think that outside of Antonio Conte's ban being upheld, there wouldn't be much else going on in the world of Juventus. Makes sense, really. One dominant news story and everything else seems to just fly under the radar where nobody really gives a damn.
Ha ha! That's not the case.
Other than Conte-related material, the interwebs has offered some other news/opinion matters for us today. And with the new campaign just a few short days away, what better way to ramp up into calcio mode than to read about it?Andrea Agnelli's official statement regarding the decision to keep Conte's touchline ban at 10 months
