Leonardo coy on chances of PSG return

FC's Julien Laurens questions PSG's decision to spend nearly their whole allotment of transfer money under FFP sanctions on David Luiz.

Leonardo returns to Paris on Friday in the hope of seeing disciplinary proceedings against him ended, and has acknowledged he has "an eternal link" to Paris Saint-Germain.

- Johnson: Does David Luiz represent value for money?

Leonardo, 44, was banned from all official football duties until June 30 by the French Football Federation (FFF) after being found guilty of barging into a referee in May 2013 when he was sporting director at PSG.

After a number of favourable judgements, the Brazilian will arrive in the French capital hopeful this further hearing, in front of Paris' Administrative Court, will see him cleared of any wrongdoing, and the suspension annulled.

That would allow him to pursue his career as either a coach or in a boardroom role, which he relinquished at PSG following the arrival of Edinson Cavani last July.

Since his departure from the Parc des Princes, there has been constant media speculation that the 1994 World Cup winner, who also played for PSG in the 1996-97 season, would return to work with the French champions in some capacity.

Leonardo admitted to Sky Italia he retained an emotional attachment to the club.

"My idea in the short-term is to be a coach, but I'm tied to different projects, so we'll see. I am not saying I will return to PSG, I don't know, but it's clear that there is an eternal link with that club," said the ex-Milan and Inter Milan coach, who was PSG sporting director for two years and therefore well placed to evaluate the club's progress since the arrival of their Qatari owners in summer 2011.

"PSG have a competitive and balanced team capable of putting different playing systems in place. But the club is paying the fact it has been constructed in just a few years."
