Juventus manager Massimiliano Allegri described Mario Mandzukic “extraordinary” after the striker scored again against Roma on Saturday.
Mandzukic’s first-half goal was enough for Juventus to claim a 1-0 win, marking their 16th victory in 17 Serie A games.
The Croatian is already up to eight league goals for Juve this season – bettering his previous two campaigns – and Allegri hailed the forward.
“Mario is a key player. His combination of technical and physical attributes make him an extraordinary player,” he said.
Allegri also praised Paulo Dybala after Juve retained an eight-point lead atop the table.
“Paulo fared well too. He allowed us to bring the ball out of our half,” he said.
