Leonardo ready for Coppa Final

Leonardo praised Coppa Italia Finalists Palermo, but warns “Inter want their third trophy of the season.”

The Nerazzurri won the Italian Super Cup and Club World Cup when Rafa Benitez was at the helm.

“A Final is a Final and it's important for both teams to be there,” said the Brazilian ahead of Sunday's clash.

“This has not been an easy year for Inter, but it is nonetheless a positive one and we want the third trophy of the season.

“I don't see this as any personal victory, as that would be belittling the value of the Coppa Italia for a club.”

The Nerazzurri are the hot favourites and the holders, while Palermo haven't reached the Final since the 1970s.

“Palermo play in a very clear, attacking fashion and have done for many years. They will be without Armin Bacinovic, but they have many alternatives.

“It is a great squad. I don't think there is just one player to watch out for, especially as this side has strength in depth.”
