Mario Mandzukic joined Milan today and returned to Serie A, so Juventus ultras wished him ‘six happy months – without victories’ and he replied with ‘pride’ at their praise.

The striker spent five years in Turin before leaving for Al-Duhail in January 2020 and became a fan favourite due to his goals, assists and remarkable work ethic.

This was evident in a message sent by the Curva Sud Juventus 1897 group on Instagram.

“Marione, you will always remain in all our hearts, for what you’ve done, for your passion, for the special rapport you had with all of us.

“We loved him for the grit he put into every game. We loved him for the fear he stoked in opponents with his sheer size. We loved him for his refusal to laugh and the rare times he did.

“It’s a long list, but we truly loved this player. But Marione, for the next six months he will wear the Rossoneri colours of Milan.

“He is a professional, he wanted to come back to Italy at all costs, we cannot bring ourselves to condemn him, but it will hurt to see him as an adversary on the field, just as we think it’ll hurt him to play against us.

“At the age of 34, almost 35, these things can happen. So good luck Marione, we hope you spend six happy months in Italy, but don’t blame us if we wish you no victories. Ciao Marione… Your Curva, the Bianconeri.”

Mandzukic read the post and replied to it on Instagram.

“Thank you for these wonderful words… I will always be proud.”
