Legendary former AC Milan midfielder Gianni Rivera believes that demolishing the San Siro would be tantamount to destroying an important cultural monument.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera in an interview published in today’s print edition, the Rossoneri legend spoke out against the plans by Inter and AC Milan to tear down the San Siro to build a new stadium.

The Rossoneri and the Nerazzurri have been pressing forward with plans to build a new stadium in the city, an important step towards modernizing their infrastructure and increasing revenues.

However, a particularly controversial aspect of their proposal has been the planned demolition of the existing San Siro, one of the iconic football stadiums of Europe and their home for decades.

Rivera is among the prominent figures associated with football in the city who would not like to see the San Siro torn down.

“The San Siro is one of the symbols of Milan for the rest of the world along with the Duomo Cathedral and the Scala Opera House,” he explained his view.

“This would be like wanting to demolish the Scala!” he added. “If Milan and Inter want a new stadium, then they should buy the land from a private individual and build it there.”
