AC Milan and Inter have faced yet another hurdle in their pursuit of a new stadium. An appeal has been launched to invalidate their progress and while a silent strategy has been adopted, Sesto pressure must be used more.
The two Milan clubs presented their revised stadium project a few months back and what followed was a public debate. The latter concluded that the project indeed is feasible and probably better than any of the other solutions.
The city council is yet to release a complete statement on the findings of the public debate (it should arrive soon) but opposing voices are already emerging. Yesterday, it was revealed that Gruppo Verde has filed an appeal to invalidate the progress.
The group, in essence, believes the idea of renovating San Siro hasn’t been highlighted enough but rather dismissed without the grounds for it. Milan and Inter have decided to adopt a silent strategy, waiting for the statement from the council.
This is probably the right strategy, but the feeling is that concerned voices are increasing and Milan must be wary of potential long delays. Several politicians have interfered lately and it’s all a bit chaotic, which must stop as soon as possible.
Milan, and maybe also Inter, should make use of the opportunity to build in Sesto San Giovanni. The city council would lose a lot of money if the clubs were to move to that area instead, and thus the idea must be used to stop the constant nonsense delays.
The process continues, but long delays (without grounds for them) would only harm Milan and Inter in their pursuit of European glory.
