Leonardo was overjoyed at Inter's team spirit in coming from behind to conquer Catania. “Such a comeback is extraordinary.”
The Nerazzurri were trailing 1-0 at the Stadio Massimino when Esteban Cambiasso struck twice in quick succession.
“We struggled a great deal in the first half and Catania were well placed. The second was different and the substitutions made us more vivacious,” said the Coach.
“We proved that we have great character, as such a comeback is extraordinary. These were three crucial points to keep pushing forward.”
It is also a precious result considering leaders Milan were held to a 4-4 draw by Udinese, while Lazio and Roma lost this weekend.
“News of the result filtering through from Milan certainly gave us more enthusiasm and it's tough to read the table right now as we have two games in hand,” continued Leo.
“Our four midfielders can cover any role and we have to be solid in that area, then we find the solutions in attack. More or less everything contributed to these six points since I took over.
“This side has many resources and the spirit they have always had. The team is accustomed to fighting for a result.”
