Pazzini scored a hat trick against Bologna last weekend on his second appearance for the Rossoneri after joining the club on a swap deal which saw Antonio Cassan sign with his former side Inter Milan.

Moggi believes that AC Milan had the better of the deal and rued the fact that Juventus did not try to sign the 28-year-old.

"It is a well-trodden path at [Massimo] Moratti's Inter that they can't find a suitable partner for [Diego] Milito," he told newspaper Libero. "But Inter's cast-off is now shining for Milan."

Moggi, who is banned from football for life due to his involvement in the 2006 Calciopoli scandal, also felt that Giovinco came at a price too steep.

"He [Pazzini] was recommended to Juve, but instead they tried to get that unobtainable 'top player'. Pazzini would be a brilliant partner for [Mirko] Vucinic, but instead they have opted for [Sebastian] Giovinco."

"[His former club] Parma wanted a high price for a player who was already black and white in their heart, and I think the situation could have been handled a lot better," he said.
