AC Milan president Scaroni provides key update on stadium situation

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has confirmed that the club will work with city rivals Inter to help improve San Siro.

It has been reported that the Rossoneri and Nerazzurri were considering building a new stadium to replace the ageing San Siro, however more recent speculation has suggested that both sides will work to give their current ground a facelift.

“It’s a beautiful stadium, but we have so many things to do,” he told reporters (via Football Italia).

“We’ve launched this project together with Inter. Unlike in Rome, Milan fans don’t hate Inter fans. I don’t think that’s the case.

“I already said I’d supported Inter in their Champions League match against Tottenham. We don’t have this antithesis in Milan luckily.

“Now we’ve launched this stadium project together and I believe in it very much. We’ll have the most beautiful stadium in the world.

“We haven’t presented a project yet, only planning. There isn’t only the stadium, there are also other things to address.

“We’ve presented an overall proposal, the two hypotheses being a new stadium or the modernisation of San Siro.

“We want Milan to have a great stadium and make Milan the capital of football.

“Perhaps a new stadium would be easier, but there are also large-scale renovations like Anfield. We’ll know more going forward.”
