President Massimo Moratti and scorer Esteban Cambiasso explain how Leonardo's arrival “has given Inter confidence again.”
The Coach had a splendid debut, beating Napoli 3-1 at San Siro after replacing Rafa Benitez on Christmas Eve.
“I am satisfied to see the marriage between the Coach and players has been a good fit so far,” said President Moratti.
“Now the fightback begins. It won't be easy to climb up the table, but I certainly believe we can still win the Scudetto.”
Thiago Motta bagged a brace this evening, while Cambiasso was also on target.
“It was important to win tonight,” commented the midfielder. “Leonardo has given us confidence again.
“It is too early to make comparisons between tacticians and we must thank everyone who worked with us. Benitez did a good job too and we hope to continue in this vein.”
Meanwhile, there was a banner in the stands from the Nerazzurri supporters before kick-off. ‘Benitez: a sincere thanks from us, the only ones who always supported you. Now full confidence in Leo!'
