Marco Materazzi launched a scathing attack on Leonardo’s possible return to Inter. “Over my dead body! He stabbed me in the back.”
The now retired defender read stories in the newspaper this morning suggesting that Leonardo could return from Paris Saint-Germain next season in a directorial role rather than as Coach.
“A return to Inter with Leonardo? Over my dead body!” wrote Matrix on his Twitter account.
“We are very different. I am real, he isn’t... besides I love Inter, he doesn’t... it’s not a small detail, you know.
“I said the exact same things to his face. I never talk about someone behind their back. Never!”
Some comments came in from other Tweeters arguing Leonardo’s case, which only further irritated Materazzi.
“I helped him out a lot, but after he stabbed me in the back two or three times, I uncovered him!”
The 2006 World Cup winning defender also replied to questions on how he gets along with his former teammates Mario Balotelli, Javier Zanetti and Esteban Cambiasso.
“I’m a brother to Mario. With Pupi (Zanetti) and Cuchu (Cambiasso) there is respect, but we’re not as close as with Mario, Deki (Stankovic), Cris (Chivu), Wes (Sneijder), Rano (Ranocchia), Goran (Pandev) and Samu (Eto’o). They were my brothers.
“Muntari? Sulley is great! He too is one of my brothers, a real champion.”
