AC Milan coach Leonardo will leave the club at the end of the season, according to a report in Italy.

Former Brazil international Leonardo took on the role last summer but has failed to improve an ageing team.

The Rossoneri are currently third in Serie A but well adrift of top two Inter Milan and Roma. They exited the Champions League at the last-16 stage after a 7-2 aggregate defeat to Manchester United.

Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi is reported to have told the Corriere dello Sport newspaper: "Yes he will leave, we are working on a new coach.

"The new coach? There are talks in place with others. Leonardo has been too tough headed and the team has played badly this season."
