FIFA executive and family friend of Andrea Agnelli, Evelina Maria Augusta Christillin has been rumoured to become the new CEO of Juventus. The news of this first started after Agnelli’s Super League fiasco, after reports in the New York Times that he lied to UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin just hours before the breakaway announcement.
At the time FIFA executive and family friend of Andrea Agnelli, Evelina Christillin, denied she could become the new Juventus President as she said ‘No thank you, too much chaos.’ but after the forced resignation of Agnelli and his entire board Evelina has been brought back up as a potential candidate.
Evelina is an Italian sports official and a former scholar of history of the University of Turin. She has been a member of the FIFA council since September 14 2016. She was chosen as Executive President of the 2006 Turin Olympic Bid Committee in 1998, and helped organize the Winter Olympics in Turin in 2006.
