GdS: Cardinale due back in Italy – stadium and meeting with management on his agenda

By Oliver Fisher -

Gerry Cardinale is expected to land in Italy tomorrow less than a month after the last time he visited in order to address some key issues, a report claims.

La Gazzetta dello Sport (via MilanNews) writes how his first mission will be to try and accelerate the new stadium project that Milan have decided to do alone and not together with Inter any more. Within the next few weeks, the ownership have to choose the site on which to build the new stadium.

There are four areas under examination. The first hypothesis is La Maura who is currently the favourite as it would allow the Rossoneri to stay inside the city limits, but there is no shortage of obstacles.

That is why three alternatives remain alive, with the first being the the former Falck steelworks in Sesto San Giovanni, the second being the San Francesco area in San Donato and the third is the area owned by the Cabassi family between Assago and Rozzano (where Inter are considering building their own stadium).

However, the stadium won’t be the only topic that Cardinale will deal with during his visit as he will meet club’s top management for an update on how the team are doing. Domestically it has been a catastrophic 2023, but there are still the quarter-finals of the Champions League to come and a top four spot to fight for, so any assessment of roles and hierarchies will be postponed until the end of the season.
