San Donato Mayor replies to Sala’s coexisting statements: “Look at London”

By Ben Dixon -

In recent months, it has seemed increasingly likely that AC Milan will move away from San Siro and take their new home in San Donato, and today, the mayor has offered an update on the situation.

It has been a back and forward situation concerning the home of Milan, and several opportunities have been evaluated, and more will likely be taken into consideration in the months that follow. However, the current plan seems to be a move to San Donato, where the club have bought land and submitted plans.

The move would mean that the Rossoneri move away from San Siro, but they have not taken any decision lightly.

They have looked at several potential solutions and have even been offered the assistance of WeBuild to complete a project, but it seems a move away will be taken, with Gerry Cardinale voicing his preference to create a new home similar to how many American sports outfits have.

Speaking to ANSA, San Donato’s mayor Francesco Squeri spoke about the situation of the stadiums, and his words have been relayed by PianetaMilan.

“For now, the bodies for the programme agreement have yet to respond, they will respond with the adhesion I think within a week. There are no certainties. I haven’t met with Milan, there are more meetings at a technical level, with the technical office of the municipality with the Lombardy Region and the technicians of the stadium design. But at the moment there is a waiting phase.

Squeri’s reply to Mayor Sala’s statement about coexisting stadiums

“If he thinks so, I respect his thinking, but I give the example of London, where there are five or six Premier League stadiums that are in neighbouring neighbourhoods.”

  1. “If he thinks so, I respect his thinking, but I give the example of London, where there are five or six Premier League stadiums that are in neighbouring neighbourhoods”….what a perfect response
    i remember when Milan were begging the Mayor and the city for their approval…..now the table has turned

  2. This mayor has played the issue so well. Said the right things, followed protocol when needed and gave off the impresyif being reasonable.

  3. Fuck it get Milan the approval, And lay the first stone. In Italy stadiums are build only in computer’s. Since 2001 I’ve seen like 30 propose stadium from Catania, Palermo, Cosenza, Ascoli, Lazio, Fiorentina, Avellino, Cagliari, Parma, Pisa, Siena, pescara, Tarnana, Bari, Como, Sampdoria, Torino, Livorno, Catanzaro, Trapani, and many more.. bureaucracy is killing Italian clubs and tourism….
