Pierpaolo Marino believes Financial Fair Play rules “penalise Milan and Inter. The owners are not allowed to put new money into football.”

Marino worked as sporting director at Udinese, Napoli, and Atalanta and was responsible for bringing players like Ezequiel Lavezzi and Marek Hamsik to Serie A.

Juve should adjust for Ajax

Juventus face a very different Champions League challenge in Ajax and Jay Cassano hopes they’ve learned their lesson from Atletico Madrid.
