Leonardo has not lost hope of the Scudetto after the remarkable comeback to beat Lazio. “It was an extraordinary win and anything can still happen.”
The Nerazzurri were in a head-to-head battle for third place and trailing 1-0 with 10 men, but earned a 2-1 victory to recapture second.
“It is a special and extraordinary win,” said the Coach. “Anything can still happen. I still believe in the Scudetto. Am I too optimistic?”
If Milan win at Brescia in the 18.00 UK time kick-off, they will go eight points clear at the top of the table with four rounds left.
“These players sent out a clear signal,” continued Leo. “They went down to 10 and a goal behind after 20 minutes, but were able to react and fight back.
“It was a very strange season compared to usual, as it was broken up too many times by the change of management and various injuries.
“What remained intact was the amazing spirit of this team and it never lost its heart. The foundations of Inter are there and will not move, so this is not the moment to think about the future.
“Don't forget, anything can still happen. My rapport with Inter is very clear. I want to achieve my targets and am relaxed.”
