The mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala insists he would lift the restriction on the new San Siro Stadium project if he had the authority to do so.

In 2019, Inter Milan and AC Milan began working on a unified project to build a new ground in place of the current Giuseppe Meazza Stadium.

However, this project recently received a deadly blow. The city’s Superintendency prevented the two clubs from demolishing the current ground.

The committee declared the current stadium a site of cultural and historical significance. Therefore, the Nerazzurri and the Rossoneri had to find new locations for their separate projects.

Inter are now planning to build a new stadium in Rozzano. As for Milan, They will construct theirs in San Donato.

Milan Mayor Giuseppe Sala Describes The Restriction On New San Siro Project As “Madness”

Therefore, the Milan mayor can only rue the decision that will force the two clubs to leave the city’s walls.

Sala insists that he would have overturned the decision had it been his call.

“If I had the authority to remove the restriction imposed by the Superintendency on the Meazza stadium I would have lifted it,” said the mayor via FcInterNews.

“I believe that this restriction, which among other things is of a cultural nature, is madness.

“But since someone has placed it, we should try to understand what we can do about it.

“I don’t have the power to remove it. But if I could, I would instantly remove it.”
