Apparently, chairman Andrea Agnelli has resigned from Juventus after Super League failed to launch.
The European Super League is on the verge of collapse following all six Premier League clubs’ withdrawal on Tuesday night.
English sides Chelsea and Manchester City pulled out first, ensued by the other four EPL clubs. And now, the rest of the twelve Founding Clubs are reconsidering the league itself.
Meanwhile, Agnelli has resigned from Juventus after Super League crisis, or so the Turin club have confirmed on their official website.
Beside allegedly washing their hands off the Italian businessman, Juventus also pointed out that some clubs will now change ownership. The American-owned clubs among the twelve are especially likely to be sold.
Soon after rumors of resigning, Agnelli owned up to his errors with the Super League proposal. He conceded a defeat in his effort to launch the breakaway league.
While he still insisted upon the beauty of the project, he admitted there was no chance it would continue now.
When asked if the project would go ahead with just five/six teams, he said frankly, “no”:
“I remain convinced of the beauty of that project, of the value that it would have developed to the pyramid, of the creation of the best competition in the world,” he maintained, though.
This is quick U-turn from Agnelli’s confidence just a day ago. He’d boasted that no one could stop the competition from happening because the twelve teams were in a “blood pact”.
