AC Milan coach Leonardo wants time to gel team

AC Milan coach Leonardo says he needs more time to settle down his players after a disappointing TIM tournament.

AC Milan coach Leonardo says he needs more time to settle down his players after a disappointing TIM tournament.

“It has been a difficult period of training,” confessed Leonardo, whose Serie A debut against Siena is next week.

“There were some problems in the game with Juve and we struggled to finish off chances, but we have to wait a little longer before we can truly evaluate our potential.”

The club has been criticised for failing to bolster its squad, bringing in just Huntelaar, Oguchi Onyewu and Flavio Roma since selling Kaka to Real Madrid.

“This is my squad’s basic structure. There are little things to sort out, yes, but even if there are some new arrivals then this will remain the team.”
