Leonardo admits being lucky to keep Inter Milan job

Leonardo admits he's lucky to have kept his job after a tough week at Inter Milan.

The holders lost 5-2 at home to the Bundesliga outfit just three days after suffering a humiliating 3-0 defeat to Milan in a potentially title-deciding derby.

"If I had been a director, I probably would have been less kind than the President," Leonardo said.

"At times thinking like a director I would sack myself: but I don't feel at risk because it's not part of who I am. I am not afraid of losing my place. If it happens, it happens. But I am sure that we can take the situation in hand again.

"The resources to do it aren't lacking. For example, Diego Milito was a hero on his return: he was out for a long time. We need results.

"The recent defeats have been heavy even if mathematically we are still in the fight. But they have been faced in a very lucid manner. Now we must try to find a solution as quickly as possible, but what has happened has happened and we are looking forward.

"I have also met the President and it was a calm meeting. We spoke about the things that aren't working. It was positive for the both of us to start again."
