Esteban Cambiasso hopes Inter Milan fans support underfire teammate Mario Balotelli. The striker infuriated the San Siro crowd by throwing his Inter shirt away at the end of their 3-1 win over Barcelona.

Cambiasso said: "The important thing is that the team has managed to win a very tricky game. Everybody knows he has worked for this result and everyone is comfortable if he gave 100%.

"This is the same standard for us all."

Dejan Stankovic also defended his teammate, "Look, he is just a kid."
