Leonardo appointed Inter boss

Inter Milan have confirmed Leonardo as Rafael Benitez's replacement, giving him a one-and-a-half-year contract as their new boss.
Speculation had linked the former AC Milan coach with the position even before Benitez officially parted company with the European champions yesterday, and the Nerazzurri have now officially confirmed his appointment.
The 41-year-old, who had one season in charge of Milan during the 2009/10 campaign, will officially start work with the Serie A champions on Wednesday.

"Leonardo has a contract that will bind him to Inter until 30 June 2012.
"For Leonardo, the most sincere and good luck, we believe that he has the class and experience of a champion and his mentality will get the team together to get results."
Club president Massimo Moratti had insisted earlier that he would not be naming Benitez's successor until after Christmas, but has now reneged on that to appoint the former World Cup winner.
