The Rise and Fall of Serie A: What Went Wrong?

Throughout the 1980s and 90s, Serie A was widely considered to be the best league in world football.

Italian clubs had the best players, the most fans, and they won the most continents trophies, but in the late 1990s and particularly during the 2000s, this all began to unravel.

Serie A is now only ranked as the fourth best league in Europe, behind La Liga, the Premier League, and the Bundesliga.
