Andrea Agnelli remains a firm believer in the European Super League despite the obstacles the protagonists face in reviving the idea.
He, along with the most prominent figures from Real Madrid and Barcelona, are the remaining supporters of the idea and remain determined to break UEFA’s monopoly.
Agnelli lost his prestigious position as head of the ECA and the last head of the European club body is PSG’s Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
The Qatari businessman is strongly against the idea of ESL and has remained opposed to it.
When PSG visited Turin to face Juventus in the Champions League last night, the president of both clubs met earlier in the day as is customary.
A report on Calciomercato reveals that Agnelli and Al-Khelaifi had lunch at a restaurant in the city and discussed some issues.
They reveal that Juve’s supreme tried to sell him the ESL idea again, but the businessman argued that football should remain open for anyone to win or lose.
Juve FC says
Al-Khelaifi now enjoys a prestigious position in European football and will not want to make the same mistakes that Agnelli did.
That will require him to stay loyal to UEFA and work against the idea of ESL for as long as he retains his position.
