Milan Mayor Beppe Sala feels that the latest appeal lodged against Inter and AC Milan’s new stadium could present further complicated obstacles for the teams’ plans.

Speaking to Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, via FCInterNews, the Mayor responded to news of a new appeal being launched, emphasizing that things must be fair for the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri as well as the citizens.

The controversy in the city of Milan around Inter and Milan’s plans to demolish the San Siro and build a new stadium is continuing to linger.

The public debate on the plans was concluded earlier this month, with some of the main issues highlighted being environmental impact, noise, and potentially increased ticket prices.

The clubs will feel that the conclusion of the debate is a major bureaucratic hurdle cleared, whilst they also are awaiting the approval of the City Council.

However, the latest appeal could continue to throw up obstacles in their path.

“I haven’t read the appeal yet, but it’s clear that it will be like an obstacle course,” Sala said.

“We have to do what’s right, on the one hand protect the rights of those who live in those neighbourhoods, on the other be fair to the teams who legitimately ask for a new stadium.”
