Galliani admits AC Milan plan to lay artificial turf

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed plans to lay artificial turf at the San Siro.

AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani has revealed plans to lay artificial turf at the San Siro.

After last night's stalemate with Barcelona, Pep Guardiola complained about the state of the pitch, which despite being continually re-laid is choppy and can cause an irregular bounce of the ball.

“We’ve got to change the pitch, installing a hybrid surface with a synthetic base and natural grass on top,” explained Galliani.

“We hope to reach an agreement with Inter, as we’ve already set this up at the Milanello training ground. At the end of the season, if we agree on it, then it can be installed in two months. I will work hard to make this new turf happen.”
