Fiorentina winger Joaquin rates Serie A a tougher competition than the Spanish Liga.

Joaquin left Malaga for Fiorentina in the summer.

"I miss Malaga, but at the same time it was difficult to continue there with the club's economic problems and I couldn't turn down a side like Fiorentina," he told Cadena Ser radio.

"Italian football is much more difficult than Spanish football."
