Agnelli hosted Milan, Inter, FIGC and Serie A in ‘secret’ meeting

Juventus President Andrea Agnelli secretly met with the chiefs of Milan, Inter, Atalanta, Bologna, Udinese, Genoa, the Lega Serie A and FIGC in September 2021. ‘I hope something happens, otherwise we’ll slowly crash to the ground.’

The encounter appeared in the legal papers provided by the public prosecutor in Turin to recommend a trial for 12 individuals plus the club.

News agency ANSA reported the meeting took place on September 23, 2021 in an estate in Fiano, the countryside outside Turin.

The dossier states that the meeting was kept quiet and only discovered thanks to Agnelli’s wiretapped conversation the next day.

Those present reportedly included Atalanta CEO Luca Percassi, Genoa President Enrico Preziosi, Inter director Beppe Marotta, Milan President Paolo Scaroni, Udinese vice-president Stefano Campoccia and Bologna CEO Claudio Fenucci.

Crucially, there are also reports that Lega Serie A President Paolo Dal Pino and FIGC President Gabriele Gravina were also involved.

This was referenced directly by Agnelli, who in a telephone conversation the next day said: “I only hope that last night does something. Gabriele and Paolo’s presence was useful.

“I hope something comes from it, because otherwise I don’t know what to do. Me and you already talked about it when we saw each other in the office.

“Now we need this element to provide something useful, because otherwise we’ll slowly crash to the ground.”

The dossier also notes that Agnelli was urging everyone to unite behind plans to increase the revenue of Italian football clubs and the Lega Serie A, so it may have been linked with the attempts to set up a media company for the sale of television rights.

This week, after the Juventus investigation erupted, FIGC President Gravina did hint that they were not the only clubs involved.

“This is just the tip of the iceberg.”
