Inter’s plans to knock down San Siro are sad but necessary for the club’s long-term future, at least according to one famous Nerazzurri supporter.

Inter and AC Milan have been at work on a project to build a new state-of-the-art stadium for more than a year new, although a recent report suggested it wouldn’t be ready for action until 2025.

Italian singer and songwriter Roberto Vecchioni is not looking forward to seeing the Giuseppe Meazza demolished but admits it’s in the club’s best interests.

“It is sad to think of the city of Milan being without a stadium that has made not only the city’s history, but also that of its teams, like my Inter,” Vecchioni told Italian news outlet Mi-Tomorrow.

“I remember when my father took me to the stadium to watch the likes of Benito Lorenzi, Amadeo Amadei and Antonio Valentin Angelillo.

“It is sad but it is necessary [that the stadium will be demolished], ​​the new stadium is welcome.”

Inter and AC Milan’s project, which is expected to cost in the region of €1.2 billion, could be delayed by Suning’s attempts to sell the club.

Last week, a journalist following the story suggested the clubs will not get the green light to start building the new stadium until the start of next year.

On top of building a stadium, they also plan to completely rejuvenate the San Siro district by bringing in hotels, restaurants and a new entertainment area for supporters.
