As Milan took another two points off leaders Inter this weekend with an impressive 4-0 win over Siena, coach Leonardo urged his men to take one game at a time as they look to continue on their fine vein of form.
“The Scudetto? Personally I’m not superstitious, but I think its better that the squad takes one game at a time,” he declared to SkySport shortly after the game.
“We are enjoying a great period of form right now, but only time will tell where it will bring us.
The tactician then commented on the fine form of Ronaldinho, who seems to be returning to his best after finding a new lease of life under his Brazilian coach.
“He is entertaining us all right now and is a world class footballer. When a player feels wanted, then consequently he is more likely to produce the goods on the field. ‘Dinho’ has rediscovered his hunger for the game and now he is even scoring again.
“It has to be said that we are also obtaining great results at the back, and I believe we have the best central defensive partnership in the division. [Ignazio] Abate and [Luca] Antonini are also contributing a great deal as is [David] Beckham and [Marco] Borriello."
Leonardo was then probed as to his sensations ahead of next weekend's head-to-head against city rivals Inter.
“The derby comes in the most beautiful stage of the season so far. The fact that the two sides are close in the standings makes it all the more interesting.
“It will be a great game and one that all coaches relish to be involved in.”
