Milan president: The new stadium is fundamental for Milan's future

AC Milan president Paolo Scaroni insists that the new stadium is fundamental for the club's future.

Paolo Scaroni believes

Milan

will become more powerful with a new stadium. U.S. investment firm RedBird Capital Partners recently agreed to a $1.3 billion deal to buy Italian champions.

Scaroni told Corriere Della Sera newspaper:

“For us, time is a value. We have such an urgency to have a structure adequate to our ambitions that the first project that becomes feasible will be the one that attracts us the most.

“I speak only for a moment for Milan: we have won the Scudetto, we have sorted out the accounts, and the stadium is a fundamental element for our virtuous path.”

Milan and

Inter

have been trying for a long time to build a new stadium but the project has been delayed many times.

“We have been pursuing the San Siro project for years, it has always been our first choice.

“We have pursued it with obstinacy, investing a lot of money, aware that a project of this size and in that area of the city requires a certain authorization process that has specific times and procedures, some of which we did not imagine, to tell the truth, or we thought could be overcome, but it is clear that if there are rules, they must be followed.”

Milan's president says he still is hopeful the project will go ahead and both clubs will have a new stadium instead of San Siro.

“We and Inter continue with that project and our team met just yesterday with the coordinator of the public debate: we have hired a consulting firm to help us prepare it.

“We hope to conclude the public debate, then there will be the appeals to the Tar: if all goes well by the end of the year we could have concluded this phase.”
