Inter Milan boss Leonardo has laughed off comparisons with Fabio Capello.

Leonardo has transformed Inter since replacing Rafa Benitez over the Christmas break and has broken Capello's 2004-05 record by notching up 33 points in his first 13 Serie A games. Nobody has done better since three points were introduced for a win.

"Never compare me to Capello!" smiled his former player. "That is not right, as he is my master. Capello brought me to Italy and is an important reference point, as he helped me a great deal.

"It's a nice record to have, but let's not go overboard. Capello is on another level."
