Leonardo on the hot seat?

Inheriting therefore a little group strengthened following the departure of its star and Brazilian to cope with sudden avarice of its chairman, Leonardo did not begin its mission of coaching under optimum conditions. After the heaviest defeat of AC Milan against rival Inter since 1974 (4-0) during the second day of the Serie A version 2009-2010, coach Lombard called for patience: "We are a team always en quête d'une identité et notre progression doit se poursuivre malgré cette défaite.

Van Basten and Maldini in support of choice

If the poor performance of AC Milan earlier this season seem to be attributable to Leonardo and his lack of experience on a bench by some, others do not hesitate to defend the technician auriverde and stigmatize lack of ambition displayed in the Italian club during the offseason.

The former front-center of Red and Black, Marco van Basten believes so, during an interview with the Gazzetta dello Sport that Leonardo should not be held responsible for chaotic beginnings of his training: "It's work, and it will not be his fault if Milan do not win anything. Leo does what he can with what he is the club in its entirety should return to its former level. Coach can not be responsible if it has not invested in the transfer market. As long as Milan did not strengthen, it will be difficult to return to the level before. "

It is a very smart guy who understands and knows the club. " So Leonardo, only guilty of poor early season AC Milan?
