Inter Milan president Massimo Moratti admits coach Leonardo has exceeded his expectations.
Leonardo has taken them within two points of leaders Milan and into the Champions League quarter-finals.
"During the difficult period we went through, I thought Leonardo was the right man to bring a breath of fresh air to the club," explained the patron.
"I knew how much he wanted to put himself back in the thick of things. I had faith in Leonardo, but perhaps I only dreamed of a comeback like this.
"Leo dreamed it and wanted it even more than me, so he is taking us above and beyond what I dreamed of."
