On the challenge at Inter

Inter is a powerful, fascinating and unexpected challenge. I arrive here at inter, one of the biggest clubs in the world, in the most important year of its history, the year in which Inter won everything. Inter is now a reality, the most important reality. I was looking for a dream, a big motivation, a great challenge: at the moment there is no challenge greater than Inter.”

On joining Inter and working with Massimo Moratti

“I am so happy and it was impossible to say no. My relationship with the president was born spontaneously as I lived in Milan for 13 years. This is a special day for me. [Massimo] Moratti the president, me the coach. This is a dream for me, I wanted this and it is the biggest challenge for me. There is nothing bigger.”

Inter President Moratti added:

“I am very happy with the choice I have made. I have always had great admiration for Leonardo and his ability to learn quickly and distribute serenity. We have no rush, we will follow the love of fans and this will help us reach important objectives. I wish Leonardo the best.”
