De La urges 'calcio revolution'

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis claims “Italian football needs a revolution” in the way it is run, particularly with regards to stadiums.

The movie mogul took to Twitter in order to express his disappointment with Bayern Munich eliminating Juventus from the Champions League.

“Italian football needs a revolution,” wrote De Laurentiis when asked by a fan what Serie A requires to reach the European superpower clubs.

“We have to knock the table over and start afresh. We need to impose new rules that are suited to 2013 and not the 1900s.”

Juve are the only Serie A side who own their stadium and red tape has made it impossible so far for other clubs to follow suit.

Bianconeri director general Beppe Marotta explained the economic gap is making a huge difference in terms of infrastructure, transfer strategy and therefore results on the field.
