CONI president Giovanni Malago critical of Serie A quality

Italian National Olympic Committee president Giovanni Malago is critical of the quality of Serie A.

Malago questions the overall strength of Italian clubs.

"What is coming to an end has not been a great championship, even if Juventus have been monstrous and Roma fantastic," Malago told Radio Anch'io Lo Sport.

"For too many months the positions in the League have been locked in a season which has been below par, as has also been shown by the Italian clubs' path in the European Cups.

"This year clubs do not need 40 points to avoid relegation, they can achieve survival with a lot less.

"There have been so many games that haven't been pretty, topped with a spectacle in front of quiet stadiums.

"Certainly compliments should be made to Juve and I wish them luck to win the Europa League. Roma have been great, but with those numbers they had to win a championship. We must do something."
