We have everything that is needed: football, people, fans… I see a bright future, you just need to have courage: creating new stadiums is a fundamental step if we want to be at the top of football in the world again.”

“We have been working on this vision with the mayor for two years. It will be a new heart for Milan: it is not just a football project, but also a vision for the whole city.”
