AC Milan defender, Thiago Silva credits his form to veteran defensive partner Alessandro Nesta.
The pair was outstanding in victory over Juventus.
“We must talk about Nesta, because without him it would have been much more difficult for me,” said 26-year-old Thiago Silva.
“When I play alongside him I feel really relaxed, I think we’re a perfect couple.”
34 year old Nesta will be out of contract in June.
