AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says coach Leonardo retains the confidence of the board.

Leonardo oversaw another defeat yesterday against Atalanta and was non-committal over his situation.

But Galliani later remarked: "There are problems for him, because he has three children in Rio and will return to Brazil sooner or later.

"But I think what will happen in the future is that we will try to convince him to stay in Italy."
