Leonardo questions if he can work with AC Milan patron Berlusconi

AC Milan coach Leonardo has cast doubt on his ability to work with patron Silvio Berlusconi.

Italian PM Berlusconi was quoted telling a group of senators that Leonardo is stubborn and will leave in the summer.

And Leonardo said: "I don't know what Berlusconi said but, aside from this, I can't deny that our relationship is difficult.

"We are very different, perhaps we are incompatible, but the important thing is the next three games and I care about them too much.

"I believe I am headstrong. I believe in my ideas and I do so with passion. It's an incompatibility on a style level and a way of being.

"If someone says that I have said something that I haven't said, I deny it. But the relationship will go forward.

"I have never spoken about the future because I have never considered it to be the moment for obvious reasons, and I don't consider it to be today either.

"I can say that I have never spoken with anyone at Flamengo, the Brazilian FA and the 2014 World Cup organising committee.

"I have no official offer from anyone."
