Mario Mandzukic confirmed on Monday that he will leave AC Milan after a six-month spell with the Serie A side.
striker joined the club last January as cover for Zlatan Ibrahimovic but made just 11 appearances because of muscular problems and scored no goals.
“I’m grateful to the club management for giving me this opportunity,”
Mandzukic wrote on social media.
“To the technical staff for their dedicated work and my teammates, who are not only great players but a great group of lads.
“I’m happy we were able to bring this fantastic club back to the Champions League. I wish everyone at the club only the best for the future.”
Mandzukic retired from international football when Croatia lost the 2018 World Cup final, then left Juventus for Al-Duhail in 2019, but departed the Qatari side by mutual consent last July.
He signed a six-month contract with an option for an additional season, making headlines in March when he gave up his salary for the month after not playing a single game because of injury.
