Croatia's Mario Mandzukic says he joined Juventus because he didn't want to have to play against the Serie A champions any more. The former Atletico Madrid attacker faced the Italian side twice in the Champions League last season before agreeing to move to Turin this summer. Mandzukic revealed at his official unveiling on Thursday (July 16) that he was fed up with having to deal with his new side's famed defence. Juve have lost two men who played a key role in last season's run to the final of the Champions League, with Andrea Pirlo moving to MLS side New York City and Carlos Tevez returning to boyhood club Boca Juniors. However, Mandzukic believes the duo will be adequately replaced by the club, who have already brought in Simone Zaza, Paulo Dybala and Sami Khedira.
