AC Milan chief Adriano Galliani has defended out-of-sorts striker Alessandro Matri.

Matri has struggled to make an impact since his arrival from Juventus.

"Alessandro Matri? He is one of us, from our youth, he is not a former Juventino, he has returned home and he must be supported.

"I see that he is not playing very well right now, but he should not be booed like that, I do not understand this obstinacy," said Galliani.
