AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni has once again discussed the proposed new San Siro project, insisting that the city ‘must not look back’.
An event was held by Milan and Inter at the Bovisa Polytechnic in Milano last month, during which Italian firm Manica and American giants Populous showed their renderings for a proposed ‘new San Siro’ stadium.
However, it does not appear to be a straightforward operation as il Sole 24 Ore (via MilanNews) then reported that only two council members voted in favour of a new stadium during a vote earlier this month.
La Gazzetta dello Sport then stated that decision of the Municipality on the public interest of the proposal is expected to arrive later this month, meaning the project is now entering a crucial phase.
Scaroni spoke to Milan TV on the current San Siro and the new stadium situation, with quotes coming via MilanNews.it.
“I am very fond of San Siro, but everything has its time,” he said.
“It is wrong to look too far behind, you have to look a lot front and that’s what I’m trying to do.
“We are doing all the necessary steps, both from the formal point of view and by meeting the leader of the Municipality and the various municipal commissions. [We presented] Our ideas and answered their questions.
“I hope that Milan does not say no to a fantastic project that would allow the redevelopment of the San Siro area and to have the most beautiful stadium in the world.
“I cannot believe that my fellow citizens would renounce an opportunity of this kind.”
