The entire board of Italian champions Juventus has resigned after days of press revelations over embarrassing telephone interceptions involving its top management. The Italian Football Federation is investigating the content of tapped telephone conversations involving Juve general manager Luciano Moggi talking of refereeing appointments for games with a Football Federation official responsible for selecting match officials. The case has rapidly snowballed, with public prosecutors in Turin, Rome and Naples now reportedly investigating alleged widespread malpractice involving referees and several Serie A clubs. Juventus is owned by Ifil, the holding company of the FIAT group. The club's share price fell by almost 10 percent on Thursday.
