Tuttosport: Mandzukic motivated and ready to fight – he wants to prove Juventus were wrong

By Oliver Fisher -

Mario Mandzukic is like a loaded gun, ready to go back to doing what he enjoys most: playing football, and doing it in Serie A.

This morning’s edition of Tuttosport (via MilanNews) reports how the Croatian is ready to fight and could even feature against Atalanta if he were needed despite having just joined group training yesterday. He demonstrated it at Milanello though, during the mixed-squad game with the Primavera team.

During that exercise Mandzukic showed Pioli his characteristics and what he can give right away, and the coach intends to have him to the bench in the match against Atalanta. He wants to involve him immediately, something which should benefit the 34-year-old, who it must be said has not stopped training for a single day over the last few months.

A motivated player has arrived in Milan, who has returned to Italy to play a big part and prove that Maurizio Sarri and Juventus were wrong for deeming him surplus to requirements. Mandzukic is ready to start again and to amaze everyone once again.
