Leonardo: Sack me if you wish Silvio

MILAN - AC Milan coach Leonardo has invited club owner Silvio Berlusconi to sack him if he is unhappy with the team's form.

"I am always very calm. I have no problem; if the president wants me to leave, one word from him is enough," the Brazilian rookie told a news conference on Saturday after reports that the Italian prime minister had criticised his tactics.

Milan lost 3-2 at home to Manchester United in Tuesday's Champions League last-16 first courtesy of goals from Paul Scholes and Wayne Rooney.

They head to Old Trafford on March 10 to face Sir Alex Ferguson's Red Devils in the return fixture.
