Inter President Massimo Moratti Rules Out Move For Leonardo

Nerazzurri chief rules out Leonardo, but not Roberto Baggio…
Following news that Jose Mourinho’s departure to Real Madrid seems to have finally been agreed, Inter president Massimo Moratti has spoken about the candidates to replace the ‘Special One’ and ruled out a move for ex-Milan coach Leonardo.

“Leonardo? I think very highly of him but I wouldn't wish on him the risk of becoming the Inter coach," Moratti told La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

Moratti also revealed he was considering legendary Czech tactician Zdenek Zeman, who had numerous stints in Italy with Roma and Napoli among others.

"I had also considered Zeman," he said. “It is a help to have a young head, but I believe that I have to choose a coach with a certain level of experience. We have to bear this in mind.”

Finally, former player Roberto Baggio has also been mentioned by the press over the last week but Moratti insisted he knew nothing on the ‘Divine Ponytail’s’ interest.

“We need to respond intelligently to all this talk about Baggio. He certainly hasn't told me anything about wanting to become a coach. It could be a matter that is more linked to the club but we'll talk."
