AC Milan announce Atalanta to hold Champions League games at San Siro

AC Milan have announced they will allow Atalanta to hold their Champions League home games at the San Siro.

Milan agreed to the proposal despite some anger at being banned from Europe this season.

In a statement to ANSA, the Rossoneri have said "We can confirm that we accept Atalanta's request to be able to play their Champions League home games at San Siro. Our decision comes in compliance with the positive opinion of Giuseppe Sala, the mayor of Milan, and after having understood the strong desire of the Bergamo club to play there.

"We believe this opportunity is beneficial not only for Atalanta but also all of Italian football as it is inspired by important values such as the sense of hospitality, respect and fair play."
