      Mario Mandzukic’s motivational, all-action displays see the Croatian forward voted Juve’s best player during January by the club’s supporters

      “I believe that if I’m giving everything out on the pitch, then my team-mates watching me will be spurred on to do the same.”

      Mario Mandzukic 27/01/2017

      It’s little wonder that with an exceptional attitude such as this, Mario Mandzukic has earned an important place in the hearts of Juventus fans as well as a consistent starting berth in Massimiliano Allegri’s line-ups this season.

      Mario doesn’t know any other way than to give 100 per cent, whether it’s in training or matches and the end result is a player that, without exception, helps to improve the overall performance of the team.

      A forward by trade, Mandzukic is a rare breed in his sheer willingness to track back and make those crucial blocks, tackles and interceptions when the Bianconeri defence needs him most.

      The Croatia international is blessed with brawn alright, but he also has the brains to make the difference going forwards. It was his sublime backheel flick that released Alex Sandro down the left to cross for Gonzalo Higuain’s goal against Sassuolo. It was also his neatly threaded pass into Paulo Dybala’s path for the opener at home to Lazio the weekend before. Furthermore, it was his deft chip into the far corner that helped the Old Lady overcome Atalanta in the Coppa Italia last 16.

      Make no bones about it, Mandzukic brings plenty to the party and his MVP award for January is thoroughly deserved for his unrelenting efforts in the black and white stripes.

      Mario will pick up his prize just before kick-off against Inter this Sunday evening at Juventus Stadium and doing the honours will be a J-Member for a moment he/she will surely not forget in a hurry.
