FIFA recently unveiled the format of the new World Cup. Italy is expected to have two representatives. Inter Milan are automatically qualified thanks to their high ranking. Second place is up for grabs between AC Milan, Napoli and Juventus. For Azzurri president Aurelio De Laurentiis, it’s not right to hold back the Old Lady in view of UEFA’s ban on all competitions.

“I feel sorry for Calvo (Juventus coach), who I believe is still here, but I can also feel sorry for Juventus, who have been punished and excluded from the cups this season. If we beat Barcelona and get a draw and a win, we’ll qualify in our own right. But I also think that Napoli should go anyway, precisely because if Juventus have been punished by UEFA with elimination from the European cups, they shouldn’t even be admitted to the Club World Cup, even though such an event will create a thousand problems for us in the next national championship,” said the Italian executive at the Business of Football Summit.
