Andrea Agnelli breaks his silence on the latest Super League ruling

After Thursday’s ruling, Andrea Agnelli, the founder of the European Super League and former Juventus president, shared a cryptic set of U2 lyrics online.

Following the European Court of Justice’s ruling against UEFA and FIFA, Andrea Agnelli, the former Juventus president and architect of the European Super League, responded to the decision. The court stated that UEFA and FIFA’s opposition to the proposed European Super League breached EU law.

Andrea Agnelli quoted lyrics from the song ‘Where the Streets Have No Name’ by U2 on his X account, captioning it with “Fino alla fine,” Juventus’ motto, meaning ‘Until the end.’

“I wanna run, I want to hide
I wanna tear down the walls that hold me inside
I wanna reach out and touch the flame
Where the streets have no name
I want to feel sunlight on my face
I see the dust cloud disappear without a trace
I want to take shelter from the poison rain
Where the streets have no name
… Love Football”

As the president of Juventus, Agnelli played a key role in creating the European Super League, a breakaway competition. Despite initial support, many top clubs, including all Premier League giants, withdrew due to fan backlash. Andrea Agnelli resigned as Juventus chief in November 2022.

Following the court’s ruling, as of now, only La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid have maintained their support for the rebel league. Meanwhile, most top European clubs, including Premier League giants, have officially declared their solidarity with UEFA by choosing not to join the Super League.
