Juventus President Andrea Agnelli Hanging by a Thread After Fiasco

Andrea Agnelli will not resign despite the recent buzz, but that does not necessarily mean that he will continue to be the president of Juventus. It will be complicated for him to stay at the helm after breaking relations with UEFA, FIFA, and other Serie A teams to form the Super League, Gazzetta dello Sport reports.

The ownership had greenlighted the choice, but he might end up paying the price for the debacle and the PR hit. Juventus now find themselves isolated in Europe, with Real Madrid as their only ally. Moreover, he is openly feuding with Aleksander Ceferin.

The Exor holding is expected to decide at the end of the season. Agnelli might be moved to other roles inside the conglomerate and replaced by a less divisive figure. His cousin Alessandro Nasi is next in line, but other profiles more connected to the sports world are also being evaluated. Evelina Christillin, who is currently a FIFA board member and has held few international positions, and veteran coach Marcello Lippi are contenders.

If Andrea Agnelli was relieved of his duties, the next chairman would be less hands-on and paired up with an executive with large powers. The return as CEO of Giuseppe Marotta can not be ruled out, as he has remained in touch with John Elkann. Legends David Trezeguet and Alessandro Del Piero might come back in managerial roles, replacing Pavel Nedved, in order to rebuild the international image of the club.
