Traitor taunts will not faze Leonardo

NEW Inter Milan manager Leonardo understands if AC Milan fans consider him a traitor.

The Brazilian, who managed Milan last season and spent much of his playing career with the Rossoneri, was unveiled by Inter yesterday, replacing the departed Rafa Benitez.

Leonardo said: "I respect the views of others, so if they think I'm a traitor, I realise that it's a view born of emotions. And it's okay if my former players have trouble forming an opinion of me."
