Inter CEO gives update on San Siro situation: “We have no Plan B”

By Oliver Fisher -

Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello has given an update of the stadium situation, hinting that the project has run into difficulties.

Milan and Inter held an official event at the Bovisa Polytechnic in Milano last month, during which the competing Manica-Cmr and Populous firms took to the stage to reveal their designs for the ‘new San Siro’.

Italian firm Manica showed their ‘Wedding Rings’ design, followed by American giants Populous and their ‘Cathedral’ and Scaroni was present at the event.

The first council vote took place last week and only two voted ‘yes’ to the project, while it was claimed on Wednesday that Milan president Paolo Scaroni ‘angered’ local residents during a meeting.

Meanwhile, local authorities keep suggesting that Inter and Milan should consider the renovation of San Siro rather than proceed with the new development, and now Inter’s Antonelli has responded.

“We are surprised about the opinion of the local authorities on San Siro,” he told TGR Lombardia.

“A few months ago, around April, we had a meeting with them which seemed to be the object of no constraints.

“We want to understand a little better, we are open to talking with them. We will be pleased to meet with them again.

“Plan B? For us, the only project is a new stadium in the San Siro district. We will take the next steps together with the institutions and we will try to understand if this goal will still be feasible.”
