Inter Milan boss Leonardo relieved after reaching Coppa final

Inter Milan boss Leonardo admitted relief after reaching the Coppa Italia final last night.

Already 1-0 up from the first leg, a 1-1 draw at San Siro was enough to push past AS Roma and set up a Final against Palermo on May 29.

"It was so difficult. The first half was played at a slow tempo and after the break we created the chances that allowed us to control and take the lead," he said.

Samuel Eto'o seemed to put the result beyond doubt before Marco Borriello set up a tense finale.

"This squad worked hard and it was not easy. Eto'o understood the moment the team was going through and has had a marvellous season, as he works for the team.

"I admit that I did get angry when Borriello hit the post, as it's not good to run a big risk like that, but it soon passed."
