Juve threatened with Serie A expulsion

Serie A

Juventus have been threatened with expulsion from Serie A by the Italian Football Federation (FIGC).

The record 36-time Italian champions could be kicked out of the domestic competition next season if the club continues to align itself with the breakaway European Super League tournament.

Juventus are one of three teams, alongside Real Madrid and Barcelona, who have not yet formally withdrawn from the controversial competition despite the other nine founding clubs having already done so.

The Bianconeri's continued involvement in the Super League could now have dire consequences for their domestic standing after FIGC president Gabriele Gravina confirmed that the club could be expelled next season.

"The rules are clear. If Juventus is still part of the Super League when it enters next season, it can't participate in Serie A," Gravina told radio station Kiss Kiss h/t Sky Sports.

"I would be sorry for the fans but rules are rules and they apply to everyone. I hope this holdout ends soon."

Juventus were recently dethroned as the champions of Serie A for the first time in nearly a decade after rivals Inter Milan claimed the 2020/21 trophy with three matches to spare for the campaign.
