Supercoppa stripped from Saudi Arabia?

Saudi Arabia’s plans to host the next Supercoppa are up in the air after Serie A took legal action over TV piracy in the country, explains Anthony Harwood.

The next edition of the Italian Super Cup is set for August between Scudetto holders Juventus and Coppa Italia winners Lazio.

Luigi De Siervo, the new boss of the top Italian league, said illegal transmissions by the rogue channel BeoutQ were putting a third of its international TV rights, worth about €450m, at risk.

Gravina: 'No Serie A in China'

FIGC President Gabriele Gravina slammed the door on reports Serie A are negotiating to play a game in China, as it’d probably be the Italian Super Cup.

The rumours emerged today that the Lega Serie A were in talks to host a fixture of the regular season on Chinese soil next season.

“No, Serie A will be played on Italy, that is why it is called the Italian league,” Gravina told Rai Sport.

Serie A goes Info-VARs

Social media campaigns like #JuveOut serve only to obscure the real issues in Serie A, writes Gaby McKay.

Last week, following the Supercoppa between Juventus and Milan, the hashtag #JuveOut began trending in Italy.

The social media campaign appears to have been started by an Inter fan in the wake of the Bianconeri’s controversial win in Jeddah. “I’m trying to launch a hashtag which will serve to organise a widespread protest for a country which loves football and can no longer tolerate certain tricks: #JuveOut,” Interismo Cosmico wrote. “We ask Serie A to remove Juventus from our league”.

Szczesny: 'Juve dominated Milan'

Wojciech Szczesny insists Juventus “dominated Milan and deservedly won the Supercoppa,” while his save “helped me stay wide awake.”

Romagnoli rants at Supercoppa ref

Milan captain Alessio Romagnoli claims they were “booked or sent off at every minimal contact” with Juventus in the Supercoppa.

The Bianconeri won 1-0 thanks to a Cristiano Ronaldo glancing header, but Franck Kessie saw red after a VAR review for his high tackle on Emre Can.

“The way the cards were handed out was unusual, as we were booked or sent off at every minimal contact,” Romagnoli told Milan TV.

Trio banned for Milan

Milan will have to do without Franck Kessie, Alessio Romagnoli and Davide Calabria against Genoa, as they’ll be suspended after the Supercoppa.

The Rossoneri were beaten 1-0 in Jeddah by Juventus this evening and it proved costly going forward in Serie A too.

Kessie was shown a straight red card after a VAR review for his stamp on Emre Can, meaning his ban of at least one match is automatic.

Can anyone stop SuperJuve?

The Juventus juggernaut keeps on rolling, as Milan were barged out of the way in Jeddah for the Supercoppa, writes Giancarlo Rinaldi.

Italian football, to paraphrase Gary Lineker, is a simple game. You can play it when you like, where you like, but in the end Juventus win. They became the most successful side in the history of the Supercoppa outright without even having to be anywhere near their best. Whenever, wherever, the Bianconeri and this trophy were meant to be together.

Gattuso: 'Higuain did have a fever'

Gennaro Gattuso was irritated at officials after Milan lost the Supercoppa to Juventus and insisted Gonzalo Higuain had a fever, but wouldn’t discuss the Chelsea rumours.

Cristiano Ronaldo got the only goal in Jeddah with a glancing header, although Franck Kessie was later sent off via a VAR review for his stamp on Emre Can.

“We have to compliment the team, as I said in the Press conference we had to climb a mountain and we tried,” the Coach told Rai Sport.

Allegri: 'Juve got CR7 to be decisive'

Max Allegri admits Juventus “signed Cristiano Ronaldo because he is decisive and scores big goals” after the Supercoppa victory over Milan.

The trophy was decided by the Ballon d’Or winner’s glancing header, while Franck Kessie then saw red.

“It was an entertaining game with several chances. We were up against a good Milan that caused us problems, but after the red card we could’ve done better to score a second goal.
