    The worst part is Serie A gets all the La liga, EPL, German league rejects or younger players who will eventually go to those leagues. You would think that with all these foreign who are suppose to be "better" then Italians that these clubs would win European trophies, but not one has. Look at Roma last week they lost to Lyon who fielded 7-8 French players and Roma had what 1 Italian starter?. We need to go back to the 90's, this influx of foreign players has made the league worse.

    I retain the Serie A is still better and stronger than the famed EPL which I've always thought was overrated. Maybe Serie A clubs haven't been able to play in Europe because of the schedules ,timing , cycles or right combination of players but Its no wonder why EPL clubs point to Italian coaches or why few English players played in Italy and that isn't a coincidence.

    In 2012 Roberto Mancini won it, 2016 Ranieri and most likely this year it will be Conte. As far as Leicester City and Claudio Ranieri are concerned, I can assure you a team like that will have never won the Serie A. Not now or in the next 10-15 years.

    Amen. If a team can win with mostly domestic players they are doing something right
