Salvini and Sala share heated exchange over stadium: “All the Mayor’s fault”

By Oliver Fisher -

There was a heated exchange of statements between Minister Matteo Salvini and the Mayor of Milano Beppe Sala on the stadium issue involving AC Milan and Inter.

Milan and Inter declared their joint project to build a new stadium next to the existing San Siro a few years ago but both have now moved away from it due to a series of delays, mostly political ones.

The Rossoneri are now looking to build in the San Donato area which falls outside of the city’s inner limits and thus would no longer concern Sala and the Council, while Inter are believed to be evaluating Rozzano.

This has inevitably shifted some scrutiny back onto Sala because the city are set to lose such a big asset, and he shared an exchange with Salvini that was anything but pleasant. relay their comments, which were in Il Corriere della Sera.

Salvini first accused Sala of having done nothing for years: “If the stadium isn’t in Milan it’s the fault of the mayor and a municipal administration who have wasted years doing nothing.”

Sala then replied: “It’s all the Mayor’s fault on the stadium. But do I have to bring up his declarations over the years, which are always contradictory? Do we have to talk about the constraint that your Government has placed and which certainly doesn’t help? And in any case the accounts are they will do in the end.”

  1. Both have always been morons as i see it but i’m quite intrigued seeing the quarrel in a video as I imagine its worse than Statler and Waldorf from the muppet show.

  2. @Yuuka:
    Not “they”, only Sala, not including Salvini. Salvini is Minister of Infrastructure and Transport in Italy (not just Milan), it doesn’t matter to him where the stadium will be build. Furthermore, he is benefitting here as it ended up with 2 stadium projects instead of just 1. So Sala lose a big asset/opportunity while Salvini gain an extra big asset/opportunity.
