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.”
