Alessandro Matri hits back at critics who suggest that Juventus lack a quality striker and says that the Bianconeri players work as a team.

Juventus striker Alessandro Matri has insisted that criticisms of the club's attack are "exaggerated".

The Italian believes that the Bianconeri have an effective attacking unit that works with the rest of the team to win matches.

"If you look at the situation carefully, you understand who wants the top player more out of the club and the media," Matri told reporters. "It seems like the latter to me. That's why we are criticised in an exaggerated manner.

"There is no top player here, there is a squad that works as a unit. Us attackers work to score, but also work to create goals.

"Unfortunately, you like to criticise our attack and not highlight the work it does. But you have to deal with criticism when you play for Juventus, you have to respond to it on the pitch."

Juventus are currently three points clear at the top of the Serie A table.
