The Premier League is the league with the most clubs in European competitions in the last five years (8), but they now sit 3rd in the UEFA ranking, behind runaway leaders La Liga and second-placed Bundesliga. The Serie A is edging closer and closer and at the beginning of the next season there will be only 1.9 point between the Italian and the English league on the UEFA ranking.
Having so much money available to spend, what Premier League clubs are lacking the most is definitely organization. It comes as no surprise than that most of English clubs don’t have the role of sporting director and it usually happens that scouts usually talk directly with managers who have no time to negotiate and place the highest offer possible to kill the competition from other clubs.
Hoping that Premier League clubs will finally notice that also a model like Juventus can be a winning one, seeing for Serie A clubs playing the Champions League from the next seasons is not an impossible dream anymore.
