Father of Juventus striker Mandzukic: None of us believed Mario when he said he'd be a star

The father of Mario Mandzukic admits the Juventus striker has surprised his family.

Mato Mandzukic spoke to Tuttosport today about his son's success.

He revealed: "When Mario was a child he claimed, all serious, that he would become a great player and in the family we did not take him too seriously.

"We were wrong, he had a very clear life program from the beginning. We were the ones who did not realise how convinced he was, he is a winner, he knows no other goal than his success.

"I'm not surprised that he immediately found a feeling with Cristiano Ronaldo."
