Pippo Inzaghi admits some frustration over the lack of action he's seen for AC Milan this season. "I do not like being on the bench, of course. But Leonardo was clear and he explained his decisions," said Inzaghi. "I cannot rescue this team on my own.

"We're going through a dark moment. We lack a little confidence and only good results will lift us."

Meanwhile, on the eve of their Champions League clash with Marseille, Rossoneri vice-president Adriano Galliani insisted coach Leonardo's job was not at risk.

"Leo told me that Forbes has called the city of Rio the happiest in the world. He was born there, so despite everything, he's calm," said Galliani.
