‘San Siro project like climbing Everest’



Inter director Alessandro Antonello calls the battle to get a brand new stadium in Milan ‘like climbing Everest’ and warns San Siro is ‘caught within the Eighties.’

The state of affairs across the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza has been dragging on for years and the 2 golf equipment finally determined to go elsewhere, organising tasks for Inter to construct in Rozzano and Milan in San Donato Milanese.

Whereas the native council and WeBuild are pushing to maintain them within the San Siro space with a plan to restructure the Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, it’s secure to say that Antonello is completely unconvinced.

“In 2019 the challenge was offered to vary the legislation on stadiums, however after 5 years, the golf equipment discover themselves nonetheless ready for the native council to even declare that is within the public curiosity,” Inter director Antonello told Calcio e Finanza.

“The San Siro challenge was meant to mix private and non-private curiosity to present a complete new lease of life to the San Siro space of town.

“As an alternative, that is like climbing Everest, we can not appear to see the highest of the mountain, regardless of all of the efforts which have been made.”

The Stadio Meazza was final given a significant refurbishment for the 1990 World Cup, the place it hosted the opening recreation.

“There’s one other problem which is that the present stadium is fuelled by a generator that pumps out CO2. We’re a good distance off the web zero that was requested, and if something are nonetheless caught within the Eighties.”

The opposite grievance is that each Inter and Milan wish to personal their stadium, even when it’s a joint one, relatively than lease from the native council.

“If we take a look at different golf equipment, Barcelona earn €176m, Tottenham €135m, whereas Inter barely hit €84m within the 12 months after they reached the Champions League Remaining.

“How can we be aggressive with no non-public construction? We wish to get ourselves into the leisure world with no appropriate stage.

“The golf equipment are reflecting on the best way to make the stadium an atmosphere that lives seven days per week.”

WeBuild have been given the go-ahead to attract up plans for restructuring San Siro, however that may take time.

“All of it will depend on what will be completed, as a result of minimal structural modifications wouldn’t assure the extent of income we’re searching for.

“We’re engaged on Rozzano and haven’t any different, as a result of the WeBuild proposal received’t be prepared earlier than June.”
