Zlatan about coming Mandzukic: ‘Now the two of us can cause fear’

โ€œ I am very happy about this,โ€ says Zlatan Ibrahimovic on Monday evening about the arrival of Mario Mandzukic.

AC Milan officially announced on Tuesday that the Croatian attacker has been captured. He signed a contract with the leader in Serie A until the end of the season, with option on an additional year. โ€œNow we can cause fear to the opponent with two,โ€ says Zlatan.

The 34-year-old Mandzukic knows Serie A well. Between July 2015 and January 2020, he wore the Juventus shirt. In 162 matches the Croat scored 44 goals for the Oude Dame. He then moved to Qatari Al-Duhail, for which he scored in seven matches.

The striker, who became viceworld champion with Croatia, was without a club since July and is therefore transfer-free to Milan. He will be a regular substitute for Ibrahimovic, who scored twelve times this season, and will also become a teammate of Alexis Saelemaekers.

Mandzukic, who also has a history with Wolfsburg, Bayern Munich and Atletico Madrid, gets the number 9 at Milan, which seemed cursed in recent years by the failure of carriers such as Andrรฉ Silva, Kristof Piatek, Gonzalo Higuain and Fernando Torres.
