Mandzukic steps in for Zlatan?

Milan forward Mario Mandzukic could get the go ahead to prove his worth against Genoa on Sunday.

There were great expectations to the former Croatia international when he arrived in January, but his time on the pitch has been limited due to fitness problems.

The former Juventus striker is back at coach Stefano Pioli’s disposal and he must convince the managers at the Rossoneri to renew his contract during the eight remaining games.

Mandzukic will play for his future and with Zlatan Ibrahimovic suspended for the match against the Rossoblu, La Gazzetta dello Sport claims Milan could opt to replace the Swede with the 34-year-old.

The striker has played four League games since his return to Serie A and has yet to score in his five competitive appearances for the Rossoneri.
