Galliani: I Love Leonardo


Milan vice president Adriano Galliani is keen to stress that there are no in-house squabbles between the club’s board and coach Leonardo, claiming he “loves” the Brazilian.

A number of critics have not been convinced by the club’s performances in Serie A, and the daggers were thrown in Leonardo’s direction. Reports have suggested there is tension at Milanello as club chief Silvio Berlusconi had become disappointed with the poor domestic start.

However, Galliani was quick to puff his chest out and focus on the positives as he rubbed shoulders with other club presidents at the Lega Calcio meeting in Milan.

“I love Leonardo, and so the situation remains the same as always,” Galliani told the press, as reported by Sky Sport Italia.

The club dignitary underlined the strength in the Champions League, suggesting their efforts will be spent pushing for the ‘big-eared’ trophy.

“It’s evident that we have an extra gear in Europe compared to everyone else,” added Galliani.

“The results have proved this.”

Galliani also praised Clarence Seedorf, who seems to have stepped up to the plate in recent weeks.

“Seedorf is a great player. When he plays well the team does too, and vice-versa,” concluded the Italian.
