    Juventus chief blames Brexit for Super League collapse

    "Andrea Agnelli says English clubs joining new league would have been seen as an ‘attack’ on UK politics.

    Conceding that the controversial football Super League was officially dead in the water, Juventus chief Andrea Agnelli searched for a scapegoat and landed on … Brexit.

    The Juventus chairman, reportedly one of the leading architects of the rebel league, told Reuters he had heard “speculation" that "if six teams would have broken away and would have threatened the EPL [English Premier League], politics would have seen that as an attack to Brexit and their political scheme.”"
