Milan Coach Leonardo: The Gap With Inter Is Still Big

The tactician is keeping his feet on the ground...
Milan coach Leonardo insists there is still plenty of work to be done before his team can mount a challenge to wrest the Scudetto from league leaders Inter.

An eight-point gap separates the two teams, but confidence at Milanello has increased following the 3-0 win over Juventus on Sunday night.

Although Leonardo has attempted to enthuse his players further, he understands the task in hand involves a major push, as well as a degree of perfection from now until the end of term.

"There is a profound happiness around here, but the gap with Inter is still there and they are a team who hardly make mistakes," Leonardo told the press.

"We must not forget this win [against Juventus], as it was a deserved result. We know we have done something important, and this gives you the security to go on."
