Seven goals in fourteen matches. Heavyweight goals against Lazio, Napoli, Milan and Valencia, determine first place in the championship standings and to qualify for the last 16 of the Champions League. At the age of 32 Mario Mandzukic found himself valuable for Juventus, like Cristiano Ronaldo cannibal, with whom it was love at first sight. Second, on the field, they try and finish, if at the start of the season Allegri only had one big certainty for the attack now it seems to have defined the hierarchy. It's up front, for a calculated challenge, there's only one place, Cristiano and Mario don't touch each other, for the third best shirt wins. From outside the left or from a small change in the striker, Mandzukic guarantees the quality of the threshold (in the league has scored more goals last year) and quantity, is the first to attack, the first to survive and the last to give up. In short, what every coach wants to have.
THE FUTURE OF BIANCONERO? – Juve enjoys and pampers Mandzukic, but thinks about the present and not the future. This means that on the agenda, at present, there are no meetings for contract extensions that expire in 2020. This does not mean that the former Bayern Munich in one and a half years will end his adventure in black and white, only Juve does not want to make a frettolese choice. Paratici at the beginning of the year will make a point with a group of players, with which one can evaluate the extension of the season, until 2021. A hypothesis that Mandzukic will not underestimate. At Juve and in Turin, where he just moved, he's fine. And he continues to make his contribution.
