As announced Al Duhail, Mario Mandzukic has joined the Qatari side, after four months of being frozen out of Maurizio Sarri’s Juventus squad.
Mandzukic, one of the most well-liked and most-respected players by his teammates, put pen to paper on a contract Tuesday with Al Duhail in a deal that is reportedly worth as much as €12 million.
Mandzukic, who will turn 34 in May, was a member of the second of the two Juve squads to make the Champions League final under former manager Max Allegri.
In his four and a half years with Juventus, Mandzukic scored a total of 43 goals in 159 games in all competitions.
Al Duhail, who lead the Qatari top flight with 29 points after going 11 games unbeaten, are coached by Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho’s long-time lieutenant Rui Faria.
