Juventus GM Beppe Marotta has hit out at local stadia after their match with Parma was postponed.

The Bianconeri chief says the local game needs new stadiums.

“With all due respect to Parma FC and the city itself, you can’t accommodate evening matches in winter months at out-dated structures,” he argued.

“We’ve built a ground capable of dealing with public order problems and viability, but Italian stadiums are considered to be the lowest quality in Europe and this is a negative trend that needs to be overcome.

“If you want to put on a top level spectacle, structure and adequate planning are required.”
