Fabio Capello has stressed his belief that AC Milan need to make their own new stadium, while he also praised the team for their recent performance against Roma.
Milan seem to be pushing ahead with their desire to build a new stadium and they are doing so without Inter after doubts emerged about the previously declared project to construct a new home next to the current San Siro.
In the long interview given to Eurosport, Capello spoke about the stadium issue and he admitted that he believes there is a need to move on from San Siro given its age, with his comments relayed by MilanNews.
“I scored goals in the old Wembley, which is no longer there. In those days they had dog races, now it’s the new one and it’s the most beautiful stadium in the world, convenient for the people who experience it every day and not just on Sunday,” he said.
“You can’t have monuments that only live twice a week, a stadium must be experienced always. The idea of leaving a staircase as a souvenir and modernising it seemed beautiful to me.
“Then if something cannot be touched after 70 years, we continue to leave unattractive things standing. I played and won at San Siro but I am confident in saying: let’s build the new San Siro.”
Capello also gave an interview to Radio Anch’Io Sport on Radio 1 Rai about Milan’s start to the season, one that has seen them win all three games thus far against Bologna, Torino and most recently Roma.
“Milan are the surprise, in the last match they showed that they are a team, that they have players of quality and strength. And above all they are more compact than last year.”
The big test comes after the international break when Stefano Pioli’s side will take on Inter, who have also won all three games.
