'Atalanta-Valencia worsened coronavirus'

Alejandro Gomez admits Atalanta’s Champions League match against Valencia at San Siro “has something to do” with the coronavirus outbreak in Bergamo.

Around 40,000 Atalanta fans flocked from Bergamo to watch their team thrash Valencia 4-1 in the Champions League Round of 16 last month.

Milan Derby is like no other

Football Italia Chief Correspondent Richard Hall describes the mood in the city of Milan ahead of the unique experience that is the Derby della Madonnina.

The team sheets did not inspire confidence; all they did was remind the fans of how far the clubs had fallen. It was April 2015, it felt like the end of an era, no, the end of a world order. Then it happened. From the bleak grey swirling staircases of San Siro, a firework was thrown. Its deep boom in the aching belly of the cathedral was felt in the pit of everybody’s stomach. What happened next was one of the best pyrotechnic displays the Derby Della Madonnina has ever seen.

Sala: 'Steps forward for new San Siro'

Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala confirmed they have “made significant steps forward” with Inter and Milan over the stadium project.

The two clubs put forward two ambitious designs for a new stadium, to be built essentially in the car park of the current Stadio Giuseppe Meazza, tearing down the iconic existing structure.

Milan clubs to stay at San Siro?

Inter CEO Alessandro Antonello admits his club and Milan have been forced “to propose new ideas, starting with the maintenance of San Siro.”

A meeting was held earlier today between Inter, Milan and the city council, which reiterated its stance that the current stadium would remain intact.

The two Milan clubs are eager to leave San Siro, which they believe can't be refurbished to modern standards.

Mayor: 'Reduced capacity Stadio Meazza'

Mayor of Milan Giuseppe Sala urges Inter and Milan to work with the local authorities, as a “reduced capacity Stadio Meazza would be a good solution.”

The two clubs presented their ambitious plans to knock down the current Stadio Giuseppe Meazza and construct a new joint arena next to it, essentially where the car park of the stadium now stands.

A vote in the local council backed plans to revamp the San Siro area of the city, but shot down attempts to eliminate the Stadio Meazza entirely.
