AC Milan And Juventus In Danger Of Serie A Expulsion

AC Milan and Juventus are still refusing to give up on the chances of the European Super League.

The pair are yet to pull out of the competition, alongside Barcelona and Real Madrid. This is despite all six English clubs, Atletico Madrid, and Inter Milan all having thought better of it.

Juventus chairman Andrea Agnelli, one of the ringleaders, has even said that although he still believes in the Super League, there is no way that it can currently go ahead.

However, despite all this the pair are still hanging around in it, and it could have some pretty big repercussions if they continue to ignore national boards, UEFA, and FIFA.

The president of the Italian Football Federation this week warned the duo that anyone continuing to try and join a competition that isn't authorised by the relevant organising bodies will be kicked out of competitions.

"As for the anti-Super League rule, whoever is considering joining a competition which is not authorised by UEFA, FIFA and FIGC will lose their membership," Gabriele Gravina said.

"Anyone who has interpreted the Super League as an act of simple weakness on the part of some companies experiencing economic difficulties, is wrong.

"At the moment we have no news of who stayed and who left the Super League. This rule will be included in the national licenses and then it will be embedded in the sports justice code.

"If, by the deadline for applications for national championships, a team joins other championships of a private nature, they are out [of FIGC competitions]."

Juventus have a bit of history with a similar situation, having been relegated to Serie B following the Calciopoli match fixing scandal in the mid-2000s.

However, this would be much more serious, as both they and AC Milan would be kicked out of the entire football pyramid and European competitions.

Would this be fair retribution? And is it something the FA and Premier League should be threatening English clubs with?
