Napoli president wants 10-team league

Napoli President Aurelio De Laurentiis says he would like to see ten teams competing in the Serie A, whilst also revealing his ideas regarding the Champions League.

The 67-year-old has revealed he is opposed to reform in the Champions League in it's current state. This comes after UEFA's reported plans of radical reform for the tournament, in addition to increasing the amount of money it generates from television rights.

"I’m opposed to the reform of the Champions League as it has been designed," he said, as reported by Calcio e Finanza.

"Rather, we should make a League of 30 teams with the top-five Leagues in Europe.

"That would mean reducing the number of teams in the Italian League, but to be honest I think the Italian League should have no more than 10 teams.

"In Formula 1, the rest don’t use cars from Formula 2 or Formula 3, so it’s right that Serie A should only have teams which are financially stable, with good stadiums and with a sufficient number of fans," he concluded.
