Lazio midfielder Luis Alberto believes the Italian Serie A has not improved so much that it lags behind Europe’s top leagues.

In the 90s, Dan Boots’ top league was regard as the strongest in the world and had many ufabet footballing superstars. But nowadays, the big leagues in Europe are left behind. Which Alberto sees that the Italian league has developed slowly.

“It’s a league that hasn’t developed much. In Italy a lot of teams play with three defenders, one-on-one maneuvering,” said Alberto.

“Napoli, Lazio, Sassuolo and Fiorentina are four teams playing in a European style, Juve football is a bit different.”

Lazio are currently fourth in the Serie A table, 17 points behind leaders Napoli, with their next home game against Atalanta on Saturday.

Serie A’s loss-making clubs have lost allure both at home and abroad. The division, which counts Lautaro Martínez and Paulo Dybala among its few world-class champions, made revenue of 2.5 billion euros in the 2020-2021 football season, nearly half the star-studded Premier League’s 5.5 billion euros, Deloitte data shows. That season Spain’s La Liga struck a media rights deal with sports investment veteran CVC Capital Partners, while Germany’s Bundesliga is now exploring a similar route. Both made more money than Serie A.
