Serie A clubs can sue Andrea Agnelli who negotiated the entry of an investment fund incompatible with the Super League, while plotting the new European elite tournament.
Agnelli was one of the leading architects of the Super League and was supposed to be its vice president.
He stepped down as ECA President after the Super League was announced on Sunday, but he now finds himself in an embarrassing situation both in Europe and Italy.
UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin called him a liar, and the relationship between the two has dramatically collapsed.
Things don’t look any better for Agnelli domestically.
The Old Lady’s President was one of the members of the commission that negotiated the entry of investment fund CVC Capital Partners in the Lega Serie A.
The agreement would be worth €1.2 billion, but the deal collapsed as Agnelli reportedly changed his mind on the project. Why?
Because apparently, CVC Capital Partners wanted to include a clause in the deal that would prevent Serie A clubs from backing any other European competition that would have decreased the value of Serie A.
Serie A has then lost potential financing of €1.2 billion, and according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Italian clubs could decide to sue the Old Lady’s Chairman.
A Lega Serie A meeting is scheduled for today.
