New AC Milan coach Leonardo cannot wait to get going after being officially unveiled as successor to Carlo Ancelotti at the club he represented in two spells as a player. "I have a special connection with this club, it's a special day for me," Leonardo said. "I first worked here 12 years ago and to start again as the new coach after Ancelotti is a very important thing for me.
