Amidst the ongoing fallout of the failed European Super League, 11 Serie A clubs have called for sanctions against Inter, AC Milan and Juventus for their involvement.

The three clubs joined six in the Premier League and three in La Liga in forming a breakaway competition last weekend, only to see the plans collapse following a huge backlash across the continent.

As reported in today’s newspaper edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, more than half the clubs in Serie A have called for sanctions against the breakaway three in a letter to Lega Serie A President Paolo Dal Pino.

Roma, Torino, Bologna, Parma, Genoa, Cagliari, Sampdoria, Sassuolo, Spezia, Benevento, and Crotone all put their signatures to the document, as they called an emergency meeting to discuss punishments against the three clubs.

However, Napoli, Lazio, Fiorentina, Atalanta, and Hellas Verona have refused to demand such sanctions, and it is noted that these five have shared interests with Inter and Juventus on wider matters. Udinese, meanwhile, abstained from making any stance.

Beyond the clubs, individual directors are also facing calls to be penalised, with demands for Inter CEO Beppe Marotta and Milan counterpart Paolo Scaroni to step down from directorial positions in the league.

Meanwhile, the Lega Serie A group are also considering taking legal action against Juventus President Andrea Agnelli, considered to be the driving force behind the Super League in Italy.
