Leonardo responds to Gattuso chants

Inter Coach Leonardo has released an official statement of the club’s website in response to videos of Milan midfielder Gennaro Gattuso singing derogatory chants directed at him.
Leonardo spent more than a decade of his career at Milan and even managed the Rossoneri last season. However, at the turn of the year he took over at Inter leading to inflamed reactions from fans and some players.
During his time as the Milan Coach, he endured a difficult relationship with Gattuso and often left him out of the squad. And after the Rossoneri won the Scudetto last weekend, Gattuso was spotted chanting insults about his former coach.
“The day I decided to leave Milan, Gattuso said to me that I had at least been coherent in my choice. But today I read in lots of papers that he still wants to give his own version of events,” starts the official statement on Inter’s website.
“Furthermore, I would like to know what AC Milan’s official position is on this matter.” Inter President Massimo Moratti also weighed in to the matter and he believes that Milan should address the situation soon.
“Leonardo was very upset and that’s only natural when something like this happens. I’m not making any judgements because such actions speak for themselves.”
“These are things that can happen when people get over-excited. It had been a while since AC Milan were last able to celebrate something like this so it got a bit excessive.”

Inter take on Roma in the second leg of the semi-final of the Coppa Italia on Wednesday and if Milan are to beat Palermo tonight, the city rivals will lock horns once again.
But, Moratti stated that the team is not obsessed with beating Milan but rather are hungry for the trophy: “There’s no particular desire to take on Milan on 29 May, just to get through tomorrow’s semi-final.”
“It’s important because for us it could be the first trophy of the calendar year. The players really want it but there are still lots of good teams involved so we’ll have to see.”
