Inter director and Milan president hit back at Mayor Sala over San Siro comments

By Oliver Fisher -

Inter director Alessandro Antonello and Milan president Paolo Scaroni have issued a response to Beppe Sala’s recent interview regarding San Siro.

The two clubs have made their intentions clear to build a new stadium next to the current San Siro – a process which has been described as ‘uphill’ – with Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous the two competing firms.

ANSA recently reported that the two clubs asked for clarifications on the construction of a new stadium, such as potential constraints on the existing structure.

Mayor Beppe Sala gave a long interview to La Gazzetta dello Sport and offered an update on the situation, raising concerns about various aspects of the proposal.

Now, two of the key protagonists of the project – Antonello and Scaroni – have issued a direct response to Scaroni, starting with the Inter chief.

“Perhaps we have had more clarity from the interview given by Mayor Beppe Sala. We have never closed the doors to dialogue, we have always shown ourselves available, we have always been available, from the works to the technical tables.

“We have investors ready to spend 1.2 billion but the main valve is the fans, who deserve a stadium at the height of the city and our clubs.”

Scaroni continued: “The stadium laws, on which our proposal is based, foresee that alongside a new stadium there will also be some real estate initiatives. So I don’t see anything strange about it.

“Reorganisation of San Siro? It can mean many things. In the meetings that we will have with the Municipality I hope that this word will be filled with meaning. We need to understand if everything is compatible with our project both from a technical and economic point of view. If we have problems, there will be other ideas.”
