AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani says management are behind Brazilian pair Alexandre Pato and Ronaldinho.

After defeat to Udinese, Galliani said of Pato: "Pato started the season well, played a very good game at Siena, has two goals, had gone well, then played a little less well, but Pato is good, absolutely."

On Ronaldinho, Galliani also said: "There is nothing wrong. He was on the bench because at this time the coach sees him primarily as a second forward, more than a playmaker, but it is an opinion that probably is not irreversible or unchangeable.

"At this time for a second striker, Pato is preferred, however, he could also play there. There are so many games, there will be space for him absolutely."
