Leonardo has revealed why he left Serie A club AC Milan for Ligue 1 giants Paris Saint-Germain in a recent interview he granted. He rejoined PSG after leaving them in 2013.
“The contacts had never stopped with PSG. Since I left, there has always been a good relationship between us. I couldn’t refuse their call, I have a special relationship with this club,” he began.
It can be recalled that Leonardo was brought in as the technical director at Milan after a change of ownership was initiated at the club. He also hired club legend Paolo Maldini to assist him. However, he decided to return to the Parc des Princes when PSG came calling again.
“I was there as a footballer in 1996 and I was there as a director in 2011. Even if I haven’t been there too long, something strong has been created, and I’m happy to be back,” he concluded.
