Milan president Scaroni confirms crucial meeting with Council over new stadium project

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has spoken out about the plans to build a new San Siro stadium in order to try and move into a new era.

It’s no secret that Milan and Inter are looking to build a new stadium, thus abandoning the iconic San Siro stadium for what will be a more economically-beneficial solution. However, the road hasn’t been easy.

The Rossoneri and Nerazzurri initially suggested to tear down San Siro, building a new stadium next to it. As the city council refused to accept this solution, the two clubs have now come up with a new plan.

Repubblica.it recently reported that parts of the San Siro will be preserved to help transform the field into a sports citadel. That way, the new stadium doesn’t substantially affect the city council’s earnings from the area.

Now, Milan president Paolo Scaroni has spoken to il Corriere della Sera, confirming the commitment to reach an agreement regardless of the current coronavirus situation.

“I agree with our mayor Giuseppe Sala on the need to coordinate the utmost attention towards the emergency we are experiencing, with the importance of thinking about the future and revitalization of Milan,” he said (via MilanLive).

“And, to look to the future, I find that there is nothing better than building the most beautiful stadium in the world in our city.

“Milan and Inter are working on it together, a collaboration that, perhaps, is possible only here, where the fans are rivals but not enemies, the two teams certainly challenge each other on the pitch, but the two clubs have shown that they can work together.

“Just to show that, even in times of crisis, it is possible to look ahead and work for the future, next week we will have a meeting in the Municipality, I hope decisive, on the theme of the stadium . If there is a city that can do it, that is Milano.”
