AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says Serie A's fans deserve better than this weekend's strike.

The Players' Association (AIC) called the strike after talks broke down over the collective bargaining contract with the union of top flight clubs (Lega).

"The fans do not deserve to be treated this way," Milan Vice-President Galliani told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It is necessary for the Lega and the AIC to take a step back out of respect for the fans."
