Abodi to Sky TG24 on stadiums excluded from the Pnrr: “There is a problem in the EU”

This was stated by the Minister of Sport and Youth, regarding the projects on the structures of Florence and Venice, which “didn’t just concern the stadiums”. These are, he explained, “larger projects of urban regeneration”. And on the “grace” to Lukaku: “Gravina’s decision is right”

“In Europe there is a problem: stadiums are not considered social infrastructure”. This was reported by the Minister of Sport and Youth, Andrea Abodi, in an interview granted to Sky TG24 in which he expressed his disappointment at the exclusion from the Pnrr of the projects linked to the stadiums of Florence and Venice. Both, explained Abodi, “didn’t just concern the stadiums, but they are more extensive projects of urban regeneration”.

“Gravina’s decision on Lukaku is right”

Abodi then also made some mention of issues related to football. In particular, he expressed his comment on the Lukaku case. “Faced with a decision that risked harming only those who were subjected to racist chanting, I think Gravina made the right decision”, commented the minister, returning to the “pardon” granted by the FIGC president to the Inter striker. after the disqualification in the Italian Cup following the match against Juventus in the first leg.”There are moments in which, for a sacred principle such as the fight against any type of racism or anti-Semitism, I believe that extraordinary and symbolic decisions have to be made,” he added.
