Juventus could be welcomed back to ECA


Reports from the English press suggest that Juventus will be welcomed back into the European Club Association following the resignation of President Andrea Agnelli. The Bianconeri were among the founding members of the Super League project in April 2021 and continue to be linked with the competition, despite a number of other European clubs pulling out of the proposed competition.

At the time of the announcement in 2021, Agnelli resigned his post as President of the ECA, leading to the appointment of Paris Saint-Germain President, Nasser Al-Khelaifi.

Agnelli was singled out by the ECA and accused of betrayal for his role in the proposed breakaway competition which led to 12 clubs leaving the ECA. All of them except for Juve, Barcelona and Real Madrid have since rejoined the union.

An investigation into the payment of Juve’s player salaries and the inflated value of some of their transfer dealings has led to new investigations into the clubs dealings, as well as Agnelli standing down from his role as President.

The Daily Mail report that Agnelli’s departure has paved the way for a return to the ECA, despite Juve, Barcelona and Real Madrid still being linked with the Super League project.

Al-Khelaifi is expected to invite new Juventus chief Maurizio Scanavino to come back to the European Club Association in due course.
