Leonardo insists AC Milan remain in title race
Monday 29 March 2010
AC Milan coach Leonardo insists his team's 1-1 draw against Lazio has not reduced the fight for the Serie A title to a two-horse race between Inter Milan and Roma.
The Rossoneri had hoped to reduce the gap to Inter to one point after the Nerazzurri lost 2-1 at Roma on Saturday.
However, Sunday's result left AC Milan in third place, two points behind Roma and three points adrift of league leaders Inter with seven games remaining.
"Are Roma or Inter favourite to win the tittle? No, AC Milan is," said Leonardo after his team's draw at the San Siro.
"This is a strange season, every game is a challenge and there are many surprises.
"There are still seven games remaining and anything can happen."
Milan will have to step up their game as they have mustered just two points from their last three matches.
"Inter have a squad that allows them to compete in several competitions," said Leonardo. "Roma are in great form but even though recent results have not gone our way, we have also shown we can deliver in the past.
"We now hope to get some players back to help us in our fight for the title."
Milan visit Cagliari on Saturday still without injured striker Alexandre Pato.
Roma make the journey to Bari this weekend and Inter host Bologna.
