Inter Milan manager Leonardo believes his team can record a remarkable comeback in the UEFA Champions League quarter-final against Schalke.
The Italian giants will head to Gelsenkirchen 5-2 down on Wednesday after a poor first leg at the San Siro.
Inter led twice in that encounter before conceding three second half goals to fall well behind in the tie.
But Leonardo, who is under intense pressure to keep his job, has not given up the possibility of progressing to the semi-finals.
“I continue to be optimistic. Our goals haven’t changed,” Leonardo said.
“Anything is possible. That’s what I think and the players as well, starting with (Samuel) Eto’o, who knows a thing or two about comebacks, having experienced them first hand.”
“He told us about them and it was really emotional.”
Eto’o, who will need to play a huge role in the return leg, conceded how hard Inter’s job would be.
“It’s fairly difficult to believe in this comeback, but anything is possible in football, even dreams are possible,” he said.
“Inter is a squad made to play a great match and advance. (Also) in the league, since there are still two months to go.”
