Branchini Jr tells Juve: "Mandzukic makes no questions"

Giacomo Branchini, who played a role in transferring Mario Mandzukic to Juventus three seasons ago, has lauded the Croatian’s attitude and believes that Douglas Costa needs to get used to Massimiliano Allegri’s system. 31-year-old Mandzukic has made eight appearances as a left winger this season, scoring three goals and racking up two assists.

This is very much like last season, when the Croatian was deployed on the left-wing for a majority of the season. Branchini “Mario will never ask questions about his position on the pitch or we will never hear him complain about the distances he has covered. For him, it is crucial to play, regardless of the position and then from the outside I think it is unique since there are not many players who can play in many areas. Allegri understands how to make the most of these qualities. It's no secret that the two of them have a great relationship "

Speaking of Bayern Munich loanee Douglas Costa, Branchini said: "No one has seen the true Douglas Costa. He is one of the most technically technical players who should not be envious from the top-rated players around, exceptional technical baggage, which is helped by a truly unique explosion of pace. Of course, he still has to get used to the Italian tactics and the many assignments that Allegri assigns to him during a game. He has to do a little more without ball, but soon everyone will realize his talents. Sometimes it does happen that there is a too short a deadline in football and it would take a bit more patience.”
