Having managed the red half of Milan for one season, Leonardo was back in the city this time as Internazionale coach.
The Brazilian versatile player took over from Rafael Benitez, who had recently guided the team to World Club Cup success.
Leonardo began his stint well, collecting 30 points from 12 matches, while also setting a new record by collecting 33 points in 13 games in Serie A, beating the Fabio Capello’s mark of 32 in 2004–05.
Despite beating Bayern Munich in the last-16 round of the Champions League, Inter lost to Schalke in the quarterfinals. He remains the last manager to bring success to the Nerazzurri with Coppa Italia glory in 2011.
