Juventus could be kicked out of Serie A if they continue with their plans of taking part in a European League, the Italian federation president Gabriela Gravina warned on Monday.
The current Italian champions are one of three teams who have stuck to their plans of forming a European Super League along with Spanish duo Real Madrid and Barcelona.
Such stance has inevitably generated the ire of UEFA who are planning to punish the three clubs, with exclusion from the Champions League for the next two seasons being one of the suggested sanctions.
However, things could get even worse for the Bianconeri as FIGC president Gravina warned that if Juventus will again be involved in talks to take part in the Super League their application to take part in the Serie A will be turned down.
“Juventus will be excluded from the Serie A if they don’t withdraw their interest in the Super League,” Gravina said.
“As you know there were nine clubs who had a change of stance on their Super League position. Another three, which also includes Juventus, are very resistant on the idea. But there is a very clear regulation of the Italian Olympic Committee.
“If the club do not accept this principle then I’m sorry but they will be excluded. I hope that this tug of war will finally come to an end.”
