Zambrotta reveals Leo 'problems'

Gianluca Zambrotta looks forward to Milan's Scudetto party, potentially tonight, and reveals “Leonardo is the Coach I had most problems with in my career.”

The veteran full-back looked back in a long interview with Sky Sport Italia and was asked to compare the last three Rossoneri tacticians.

“I already knew Carlo Ancelotti from our time at Juventus, so I got on well with him straight away,” explained Zambro.

“I had a few issues with Leonardo in the year of the World Cup in South Africa. It was nothing to cause controversy about, but he is the Coach I had the most problems with in my career.

“Massimiliano Allegri is a young Coach who wants to make an impact, never gives in and gave these qualities to the squad. He's doing a great job.”

If Milan avoid defeat against Roma this evening, then they will mathematically secure the Scudetto.

“Today Thiago Silva is the best defender around and he will be in future too, hoping he'll stay at Milan for as long as possible.

“Zlatan Ibrahimovic has grown a great deal from his time at Juventus. He always scored goals, but is now more incisive and has matured in every respect. He brought his winning mentality to the group, always wants 110 per cent from himself and his teammates.”
