Brazilian feels suspension which led to resignation was unfair.
Former Paris Saint-Germain director Leonardo has claimed that the French giants have the “best attack in the world” following the arrival of Edinson Cavani.
Leonardo believes that the Uruguayan adds yet another dimension to the squad of the reigning Ligue 1 champions and that they now boast the best attacking options in the world.
The Brazilian also revealed he was forced to resign from his position, following the ruling of the FFF which handed him a 13-month ban for his altercation with referee Alexandre Castro back in May after the 1-1 draw with Valenciennes.
Nevertheless, he is proud of his achievements of leading the PSG project, and believes his final act of signing Cavani from Napoli will stand the club in great stead moving forward.
“Having the top scorer in Serie A, Cavani, and the top scorer in Ligue 1, Ibrahimovic, in the same team is amazing,” the Brazilian told L’Equipe as reported by Goal.com.
“Especially when you add them around players like Lucas, [Javier] Pastore, [Jeremy] Menez and [Ezequiel] Lavezzi.
“PSG have the best attack in the world with these six players.”
The former AC Milan and Inter coach was renowned for using Serie A as the club’s talent pool, spending almost €300m on players plying their trade in Italy prior to their switch to Paris.
His work in the transfer market was hailed by many within the club, but he is disappointed that he was forced to step aside after building the initial foundations for the club since their takeover two years ago.
“I find it unfair. It was impossible to continue to do my job at Paris because the suspension does not allow me to do it 100 per cent.
“I was primarily responsible for the PSG project, I was very involved with the players, coaches. But it all became too complicated with this suspension,” he concluded.
It remains to be seen what Leonardo decides to do next given he is unable to work in France, with speculation in the Italian media suggesting that he could return to Inter in a similar role to the one he enjoyed in the French capital.
