'Clubs in Europe at a disadvantage'

Juventus sporting director Giuseppe Marotta has called on Serie A to improve fixture congestion for club's involved in European competition.

The 57-year-old has claimed that Italian clubs are at a disadvantage when it comes to the Champions League and the Europa League, because of treatment from the League authorities.

“The Italian League is a difficult one that's very balanced,” he told reporters. “It's a really tough championship.

“So I think we need to appeal to the authorities for better planning of fixtures in relation to European commitments.

“This is a line of inquiry that we will be pursuing, and we hope to achieve something in the future.”
