AC Milan legend Paolo Maldini isn't surprised by Andrea Pirlo's success at Juventus.

Pirlo quit Milan for Juve last summer.

"I never doubted Pirlo could still give a great deal, as he is a unique player," the ex-defender told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

"Nesta with the Bianconeri? I don't know, he had a lot of physical problems and I think he takes it day by day."
