Will Juventus Turin make a comeback in the European Club Association (ECA), the European union chaired by Nasser Al-Khelaifi? Two years after his departure, following the Super League project of which he was one of the instigators, the Turin club could indeed make its return to the union. Its president, Nasser Al-Khelaifi, who is also president of Paris Saint-Germain, would see this return in a positive light. "If they stop what they're trying to do, which I think is a stupid project, they're always welcome," he said after a meeting of the ECA's board in Copenhagen on Thursday.
Juventus Turin, however, are not inclined to make this decision. "Juventus are not evaluating the possibility of joining the ECA at the moment," the club's press service told Reuters. It must be said that Andrea Agnelli, the former president of Juventus, was the president of the ECA before leaving it in April 2021 for this Super League project.
Established in 2008, the ECA represents the interests of football clubs in Europe. Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Real Madrid, FC Barcelona and Olympique Lyonnais were among the founders of the project, as was Juventus Turin, who left it 13 years later.
