Maldini impressed by new AC Milan pal Pato

AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini says he's been impressed by new signing Alexandre Pato.

"He is a very important investment as he is one of the most talented players in Brazil," the 39-year-old claimed. "There may be a desire to bring in more players in January, but at the moment it's tough to get top-class players from big sides.

"The secret to Milan's success is encouraging growth from young players."
