Former Inter owner and president Massimo Moratti has shared his disappointment at reports that Inter and Milan are considering leaving San Siro for a new stadium and knocking San Siro down.
In an interview with Il Giorno he said, “I’m really sorry that we’re thinking of knocking down San Siro for more than one reason.
“First of all, in terms of visibility and comfort, Meazza seems like a cinema or restaurant. The game can be seen very well, like in a living room.
“San Siro isn’t just a sports facility, but it’s also part of the history of the city of Milan and all its people, so I’d avoid sending in the bulldozers.
“Cutting costs shouldn’t mean having to knock down San Siro, which is a magnificent stadium.”
He then went on to admit he understands the reasoning behind the clubs wanting a new stadium.
“I understand the idea of Inter and Milan having a stadium of their own.
“It happens when private companies think about business. Hearts don’t always prevail over wallets, but it wouldn’t hurt to have two stadiums.
“If you have two owners, a 60,000-seater stadium will be completely new and changing its face will be easier. It would also make financial sense as less money will be spent.”
