Paolo Scaroni provides important updates on Milan’s new stadium saying he is ‘optimistic’ about approval of a new project.
"I am very committed to the stadium project, because it is a key ingredient for the club’s economy," said Scaroni at a shareholders' meeting.
"As you would remember, a project was presented back in July. It was approved by the council but then there were some modifications to the submitted project.
"In the next few days, a new project will be presented to the municipal council, which is aware of the essential ingredients, namely to save the remains of the San Siro, by allocating the area of the current stadium to the disposal of non-professional sports.
“In the new project there is a reduction in volume to 145,000 square meters. We expect the municipal council to examine this new document after the technical offices have evaluated it, so that we can start with the executive planning which is preparatory to the beginning of the construction site.
Mayor [Giuseppe] Sala and Councillor [Pierfrancesco] Maran are aware and we have met them often. We are optimistic."
