Inter will strike back, says Leonardo

Inter will recover from their problematic start to the season, former Coach Leonardo has commented.

Leonardo surprisingly left the club in the summer and he was eventually replaced at the helm by Gian Piero Gasperini.

However, Gasperini was sacked last month and new boss Claudio Ranieri is having his difficulties too after a 2-1 loss at Catania this weekend.

"It's just a question of results and the changes that have been made," the now Paris Saint-Germain official noted.

"There is no need to make a drama out of it though. They've only played six games and the results will start to arrive when all of the squad are fit and healthy again.

"Inter are a side who have demonstrated in the past that they can come through difficult times," the former Milan tactician added.

"The squad and the club are not worried about the four losses in six games. They know that the road ahead is still long."

Inter, who play Lille in the Champions League tonight, are 16th in Serie A – eight points behind co-leaders Juventus and Udinese.

The Nerazzurri resume their Serie A campaign at the weekend when they entertain Chievo Verona at San Siro.
