Milan Mayor Beppe Sala has issued a letter further confirming that there is no alternative to building a new stadium for Inter and AC Milan in the city of Milan in his view.

Writing in today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Mayor responded to criticisms by Lega Nord leader Matteo Salvini and reiterated both that the new stadium should not be built in Sesto San Giovanni and that the proper procedure must be respected.

Inter and AC Milan have reportedly been starting to consider building their new stadium in Sesto San Giovanni rather than in place of the San Siro as is their original plan, as delays mount in the form of protracted public debate.

Salvini issued a statement suggesting that the situation must be dealt with as rapidly as possible, but Sala responded by arguing that if the rules are respected things can be moved along in due course.

The Mayor remains fully committed to the new stadium project in the city and opposed to the Sesto alternative, but also believes that it cannot be rushed.

He writes that “I was chosen by the Milanese not to propose alternatives that cause the city to become impoverished, but to ensure that Milan experiences economic development that also respects the environment and social equity.”

“So I’m working to ensure that the Inter and AC Milan’s stadium remains in Milan and does not go to Sesto (where, moreover, there is already a glorious football club, Pro Sesto).”

He goes on that “Milan is one of the European cities preferred by investors, data is clear on this. And this is the case for two main reasons.”

“We always take into account the rights and duties of those who want to invest and never accept shortcuts or compromises on compliance with the law,” he explains. “And this also applies to the new stadium.”

“Investors must be able to rely on clear, timely administrative processes based on real actions,” Sala writes. “And we are doing this, just as in the case of all the major projects that have changed and are changing the city.”

He elaborates that “We have already approved three resolutions, two by the Executive Council and one by the City Council, and we’ve taken all the necessary steps to start the public debate.”

“We’re waiting for the executive project regarding the new stadium and the surrounding area from the clubs who have joined the public debate.”
