Napoli goalkeeper Pepe Reina believes the Serie A is a more tactical league compared to Spain and England.

The 31-year old, who is on loan from Liverpool, has spent plenty of time in both Spain’s La Liga and the English Premier League so is well-versed to pass judgement on the difference between the three competitions.

"Compared to Spain and England, it is true that the Italian games lack a bit of speed. But it is definitely more tactical," the former Barcelona and Villarreal gloveman told Gazzetta dello Sport.

"It is not true that it's a defensive game (in Italy), but, it must be said that when you have the points in the bag, you start to move back."
