Andrea Agnelli will reportedly resign from his role as Juventus president following the backlash caused by the creation of the European Super League.
Agnelli was named as vice-president of the controversial breakaway league, which has been widely criticised since it was announced on Sunday.
The 45-year-old is understood to have been at the forefront of the plan to formed a largely closed league of 15 founding clubs, with only five positions available on sporting merit.
UEFA president Aleksander Ceferin, formerly a close friend of Agnelli, was among the people to fiercely criticise the Juventus chief, who helped to plan the breakaway league while serving as president of the European Club Association and on the board of UEFA.
The Independent journalist Miguel Delaney now claims that Agnelli is planning to step down from his role as Juventus boss following the reaction to the European Super League announcement.
The rumour, which has not yet been confirmed and has been denied by other reports in Italy, comes on another seismic day in football following reports that the Super League is on the verge of collapsing less than 48 hours after its creation.
