San Siro to be demolished

Remember visiting the San Siro some years ago and was massively impressed by the stature but felt it was in huge need of repair, so this doesn't come as a surprise. End of an era though https://www.skysports.com/football/news/11854/11747967/san-siro-to-be-demolished-with-new-ground-to-be-built-next-...
