Gabriele Gravina pointed out that if Vecchia Signora does not accept the rules of the competition, it will be out of its league
Gabriele Gravina, president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), assured this Monday that the Juventus, next to Real Madrid Y Barcelona one of the founding partners of the European Super League that continue not to back down, will be “out of the A league“next season” if you don’t accept the rules.
“When clubs ask to participate in the Italian soccer league must accept the rules of international organizations. Clearly, if the Juventus does not accept them, he will be out of the national championship, “he said. Gravina at a press conference organized in Naples (southern Italy).
“Sorry to the fans, who are concerned, but for me the rules apply to everyone“he added.
The Juventus is one of the 12 European clubs that launched the Superliga of football in April, before nine of these teams resigned less than three days later after seeing extremely negative reaction from FIFA, UEFA, clubs and fans.
Even some directors of the founding clubs, such as Paolo Maldini, director of the AC Milan, expressed their negative opinion about a Superliga that “does not respect sporting merit.”
Only the Juventus, Real Madrid Y Barcelona They still do not explicitly give up the project, considering that it is the only way out of the deep economic crisis in which the clubs sank.
Faced with this situation, the FIGC recently promoted a new rule, which will take effect from next June, by which clubs that want to enroll in the A league they cannot participate in other competitions not recognized by FIFA, UEFA and the Italian Federation.
“There are three clubs left (Juventus, Real Madrid Y Barcelona) that are more resistant. There is a very clear rule, a rule that specifies what the International Olympic Committee (IOC) provides, which set some principles for FIFA, UEFA, the associations and the clubs. These principles must be respected, “he said. Gravina.
