Maldini welcomes new AC Milan teammate Pato

"I've only seen him play twice," said Maldini. "In the final of the Club World Championships against Barcelona and also in the semifinal. I was struck by his quality. I think he can make an instant impression."

On his rehab from knee injury, Maldini added: "I expect to be given the all-clear by the end of August. Then I'll take a month to get up-to-speed before being available to play."
