Matri arrived last week from Juventus.
â€śI worked with Matri at Cagliari. He is a player we needed to cover the role left vacant by Giampaolo Pazziniâ€™s injury,â€ť the Coach told Milan Channel.
â€śThe next two months are going to be very important, as we have eight Serie A games and a Champions League group phase to get through. The club understood we need options at this time.
â€śWeâ€™re not forgetting about Pazzini, who has been a very important player, scoring 15 goals last season. He is a reliable striker who unfortunately had these knee problems and required an operation in May.
â€śMatri played a crucial role for Juventus and he is the player we were looking for. Balotelli, who is extraordinary, needs someone of Matriâ€™s characteristics by his side. They make the perfect partnership.â€ť
