Astori hails ‘eternal’ Nesta

Cagliari stopper Davide Astori was left impressed by the performance of Alessandro Nesta in last night’s Milan-Barcelona tie.

Nesta, 36, was one of the Rossoneri’s star performers in the 0-0 draw with the European champions before he was replaced in the second half.

“I saw an eternal player last night…Alessandro Nesta,” the Italian international wrote on his Twitter account.

The former Lazio symbol was brought back into the Milan side on Wednesday after recent injury. He was needed alongside Philippe Mexes given that Thiago Silva is currently sidelined.

Nesta, who is only contracted at San Siro until the summer, has made just 11 Serie A appearances so far this term.
