Juventus director general, Giuseppe Marotta launched into an impassioned speech at a conference earlier this week about how Italian clubs and UEFA need to help reform the Serie A.

Marotta called on UEFA to 'harmonise' the difference in tax laws that he and AC Milan Vice-President, Adriano Galliani believe are hurting Italian football.

"The varying tax regimes in other countries are penalising Italian football," he announced in his speech. "These need to be harmonised because otherwise they create disparity, which is why I hope UEFA intervene."

On the second anniversary of 'Juventus Stadium', Marotta talked about how Serie A teams need to break away from local council owned stadia in order to increase their revenue.

"It's essential Italian football undergoes reform, beginning with stadium facilities, most of which are currently in disrepair."

"We need new legislation on stadiums because one of the reasons we're lagging behind other countries is the difference in income from them," said the former Sampdoria and Atlanta general.

Juventus moved into their new stadium in 2011 after it was built on the site of the Stadio delle Alpi, their former stadium.

Juventus Stadium will play host to Italy as they face off against the Czech Republic. If Italy win they'll seal their place at the 2014 World Cup with two games to spare.
