PSG director Leonardo tempted by future coaching role

Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo has admitted that he would be tempted to move back into a coaching role in the future.

The 43-year-old made his managerial debut when he succeeded current PSG trainer Carlo Ancelotti at AC Milan in 2009, before crossing the divide to takeover at city rivals Inter.

Leonardo, who was appointed as the French club's director of football in 2011, has actively dismissed taking charge of the Ligue 1 leaders, but admits it would be intriguing to coach again.

He told RMC Sport: "It would be impossible to see myself on the PSG bench in place of Ancelotti. It happened at Milan, but it is different here. The PSG bench is impossible.

"When I talk about my time in Italy, I talk about a part of my life. I really miss Italy, but want to clarify that I would like to lead in England too one day.

"I am very interested in the PSG project, and love Paris, but I touch a nerve when I talk about the bench. Being a coach was wonderful, and being back on the bench would be intriguing."

The Brazilian has been responsible for investing lavish funding to revolutionise the PSG squad, subsequently bringing in star players such as fellow native Lucas Moura, as well as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Javier Pastore and Marco Verratti.
