Mayor Beppe Sala excludes one possibility in Milan and Inter’s quest for new stadium

By Oliver Fisher -

Milan Mayor Beppe Sala has ruled out one scenario regarding the possible construction of a new stadium in the San Siro district.

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has repeatedly said that he is confident about the eventual construction of a new stadium and thus the realisation of a project that Elliott Management have been pushing for since they arrived, but Milan and Inter are still waiting for the final green light from the council.

As there were municipal elections at the beginning of October everything remained on pause, which is deeply frustrating for both the club who believe a new state of the art stadium could help catapult them back among Europe’s elite.

Sala spoke at the ‘Be Walter’ installation event and once again talked about the stadium, essentially ruling out the idea that the current Giuseppe Meazza could co-exist with a new one that Milan and Inter want to build.

“The cost to maintain the stadium is enormous and if we say that we use the old San Siro for the national teams, I want to see how the other cities respond. Such an important structure must be used. The only thing I would feel is excluded is the use of the two stadiums,” he said (via MilanLive).
