Leo isn't thinking about Milan

Inter boss Leonardo insists he isn't thinking about former club Milan even though they are closing in on the League leaders.

Last night Adriano Galliani made light of the fact Inter have won eight of their last 10 games in Serie A by telling reporters that they are still only two points closer to Milan than at Christmas.

Inter currently lie five points adrift of Milan and hope to make up more ground when they face Cagliari tomorrow.

"Honestly I am not doing any calculations and if you were to ask me how many points Milan have got since the start of 2011 I wouldn't be able to tell you," Leonardo said.

"I am thinking about us, not Milan. There are 13 games left, a third of the season. That's a lot of games. Anything can happen.

"This team has already shown continuity and in the last 12 games we have got great results. There has been a lot of continuity even if we can improve. I don't believe that the Champions League can distract us.

"This team has the desire to win everything and it's normal to think about winning everything without choosing an objective. In these 12 games we have already shown our ability to maintain a high standard and we have given an important demonstration of our worth."

Looking ahead to Cagliari, Leonardo is relishing the prospect of meeting his former Milan teammate Roberto Donadoni.

"Roberto is someone I like a lot. He is introverted but very sensible. He has changed a lot with time and as a Coach he has changed his way of seeing football.

"Roberto is doing well at Cagliari. He is moderate in his coaching and has taken charge of a team that he likes."
