19. Andrea Agnelli
Agnelli is one of those sports executives who thinks he’s smart because he has a lot of money. However, the truth is that he inherited a massive fortune from his family. He took over Juventus after the infamous match-fixing scandal and revitalized the club’s fortunes. But Agnelli is not a hero. In fact, he is one of European soccer’s shadiest and greediest.
Firstly, he was the subject of an investigation in 2014, after allegations of mafia infiltration into his team. He received a one-year ban from football for his illegal ticket sales. Then, in 2021, he attempted to lead Juventus into a European Super League. This was a total failure. But it was an attempt to violate the conventions of European soccer. He also revealed his greed in the process.
