CARLOS DUNGA, say goodbye to your job because, Leonardo wants it. The Rossoneri coach has revealed that he would like to be the man on the lines in World Cup 2014 with Brazil national team, but even though that, he claims is unlike Sacchi, Capello or Zaccheroni and his rapport with president Berlusconi are good.
Milan Brazilian coach, Leonardo, has told about his ambition to coach Brazil someday, as he would even like to be the man who directs the orders already in the next World Cup.
Dunga’s men are maybe the most dangerous national team in the world right for now and they are favorites for winning the World Cup this summer. However, they are in the ‘Group of Death’.
“I’d like to coach Brazil,” Leonardo admitted to the press. “I’m not setting it as a future objective, but to think of a World Cup in Brazil in 2014 is a nice thing.
“I think my possible future with the Brazilian national team might not be in a technical role, but for now I’m not making programs and only think of the present.”
Milan are now second in the standing and when everything goes right, also President Silvio Berlusconi is happy. The Prime Minister has always liked an attacking line-up and this is what he gets from Leo.
“I talk with President Silvio Berlusconi. One of his characteristics is that he makes himself heard more during difficult times than when things go well,” the 40-years-old said.
“At the beginning it was a constant, now a bit less, also because of the many things he’s involved in, but our ideas are always the same. There’s a certain line that’s agreed on and things are going well. But he’s always very close to us.”
Many have already made comparison between Leonardo to the coaches from the past who were, like him, inexperienced but today they are great coach.
“I can’t pretend to arrive one day and become like [Arrigo] Sacchi, [Fabio] Capello, or [Albero] Zaccheroni because we are different,” Leo said.
“The best thing is to have learned from everyone and then put together all the information I have learned to work in the best way possible.”
