    I used to love watching Italian football as a kid in the 1990’s, when it was shown in the UK on channel 4 as ‘Football Italia’. It was a great showcase for serie A during a time where the italian teams were amazing. Players like Baggio, Maldini, Ronaldo and Batistuta really made me love the sport.

    I don’t agree with his comparison but i don’t see anything wrong with them wanting more money. The game is changing and they have to keep up.

    As an American, if it’s another option to watch on a major network on Saturday/Sunday mornings, sign me up. Love waking up and watching some good matches before going about my day.

    Had to edit the title a wee bit to make it fit, here’s the full quote:

    > “It is time to sell our Serie A properly, as we are so far behind. La Liga gets €700m for overseas rights, so I don’t understand why we should have to make do with €300-400m. They only have Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid and Barcelona. We have Juventus, Napoli, Inter, Milan, Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina etc.”

    Also I don’t really agree with his comment about La Liga only having those three teams, but the general idea is sound. It’s crazy that we’re getting so little compared to other leagues, and apparently the next deal is likely to be even worse. He also says Serie A should be reduced to 16 teams again which I 100% agree with as well.

    Serie A is just working back to be competitive again, I support Serie A but I think that La Liga deserves to have more TV money than Italian league, it will change in few years but for now if i was going to follow his logic then La Liga has Ronaldo and Messi, who do we have? Dybala…who isn’t even as popular as Bale?

    La Liga sells rights to watch Ronaldo and Messi, hard to compete with that.

    I like where Serie A is going. Sinisa Mihajlovic is doing godlike work with Torino and Atalanta seems to be playing attractive football. We have 9 teams who can challenge for European spots and this is what I like about Serie A. The more money we get the more competitive we get. We need more TV money so we do not have to sell our best players to Premier League.

    I do agree that we should be having just 18 teams in Serie A.

    Most of the comments here are missing the point. His point is not stating who’s got better teams, or which league has more top clubs. He’s just saying that Serie A is way more competitive than La Liga, which is true. Apart from the top3 spanish teams, the others don’t compete for the title (ok, I know Betis just beat RM, and I love a good underdog story). Serie A, despite Juve dominance, looks way more balanced, with plenty of clubs capable of atracting stars and football that’s entertaining to watch. Kinda like Premier League, where results are not as defined beforehand as one could think.

    Honestly, language is the probably the biggest hurdle for them. The Premier League is popular because of a lot of countries overseas speak English. La Liga is popular because of Spanish.

    I’m more interested in the comparison with the Bundesliga.

    I agree with this, I genuinely tend to miss out on Serie A for no good reason. Serie A while having a whole lot of good teams and exceptional players needs a mainstream approach for broadcasting.

    I personally think, that the “look” of the Serie A is just not really appealing. They have to step up their production game and their stadiums. Old olympic stadiums, that look like they need a renovation, strange camera angles,.. It just doesnt look modern.
    Take a look at the Bundesliga or Premiere League e.g.
    Much more attractive. And I don’t mean the Football.

    Imo, one of the reasons la liga has a big following is because it’s a Spanish league.

    I’m from Central America, Barcelona and Madrid are huge over there. (Something that I find is detrimental to the local clubs but I’ll leave that for another day).

    I really can’t see Spanish speaking countries having the same type of connection with Italian teams.

    I refuse to believe the ‘boring defensive game’ hype after investing heavy amounts of time into Italian football last season and this season. It competes on a level with German football and Spanish football.

    Whilst Madrid and Barcelona games might be more interesting from an attacking perspective, I have to agree with De Laurentiis, the quality of the Italian league as an entity is subjectively higher.

    Historically Italian teams have had more impact in world football: Torino, Sampdoria, Genoa, Inter, Milan, Fiorentina, Roma, Lazio, Napoli, Juventus, heck Zico played for Udinese!

    However, in the last 25 years or so Spanish teams, in particular Barca, Madrid, Sevilla, ATM and maybe Valencia, have blown everyone else out of the water. So it’s a tough call, but I would give the slight advantage to La Liga on this comparison. Also, the Spanish league managed to modernize more rapidly and has better overall stadium infraestructure. So in conclusion, La Liga is certainly ahead, currently. And I say this as a huge Serie A fan. Hopefully Serie A can go back to its glory days

    He’s not completely wrong. Taking Europe off the table, Lazio v Milan drags my attention as much as Villareal v Atletico. Imo the difference in those fixtures should not be 300-400m. At most I’d say 100 maybe even just 200m max.

    To everyone here saying the league is boring: I watch a lot of premier league, and almost every weekend one of the matches I watch is fucking boring. Some people seem to think that an entertaining PL game is the norm and an entertaining Serie A match is an exception, but in reality if we look at leagues objectively they all probably have about the same amount of entertaining games and boring games. That applies to pretty much every league in the world.

    He’s not wrong. Serie A has really improved it’s general quality of competition over the last 5 years. Juve are still the favourites going into each season but you can see the gap lessening year after year.

    (I don’t have a source on this (possibly James Horncastle) but I’ve heard that Serie A is outscoring the PL and La Liga).

    Just my opinion, I tend to enjoy the on-field action of an average Serie A match more than a La Liga match….but the atmosphere is so poor in most Italian matches that its less enjoyable to watch.

    La Liga matches without the big three teams often remind me of NFL games broadcasting from San Diego on a Sunday afternoon (RIP), super mellow atmosphere, almost always sunny, not totally exciting.

    ~~Dont already Inter, Milan etc.. have more revenue than Atletico and the rest of Spain besides Real or Barca?~~

    Think Barca and Real make up the majority for the oversea rights, but de Laurentiis is right, with marketing Serie A better.

    He’s actually right. The number of exciting (and consequently unpredictable) Italian teams is much higher than in other leagues, and the rivalry and drama there is much higher. Not to mention the completely different football style.

    think he overrated teams like Inter, Milan, Roma, Lazio, Fiorentina when he compared their impacts to the value with Barca,Real and Atletico.Atm only Juve and Napoli worth noting. Ability wise they are belong to the tier of Sevilla,Villareal…etc.
