“Jovic is in a crisis …”

first_imgMitrovic sends a message of confidence in Jovic. He insists that if the striker plays regularly, he will demonstrate that level that amazed Europe last season while at Eintrach: “He only needs minutes, I am convinced that if he plays several complete matches the goals would come. Now he is in that situation and he has to continue working, that he believes in himself, that he trains and everything else will come. That said, the goals are like ketchup, when you shake it you don’t score and then more comes out than meets the eye. The most important thing is that he works and continues to train, that he is persistent and does not give up. I have told him a few times that he really has everything to be a huge attacker. Playing at Real Madrid also carries a lot of pressure, responsibility and all that, but again I say that he is young, he has many seasons and football ahead ”, settled.Jovic, case closedA thought that permeates the Bernabéu. AS published this Sunday that the club has no doubts about Jovic’s future: “Luka is at the perfect age to grow as a footballer and as a person, signed a contract until 2025 and we have him. The first year is not easy for anyone due to its adaptation to a new country, language and culture, but we know its potential and nobody doubts its possibilities here. “ After several convulsive weeks, Luka Jovic breathes.

Mitrovic acknowledges that Jovic has not had a good time in his first months at Real Madrid because of his drought. He has only two goals in 770 ‘(one every 385’) and many obstacles: the lack of adaptation to the team game and command of Castilian, bad luck (he has shot twice to the post) and the VAR (two goals annulled by offside). “Luka is in a kind of crisis,” said the Serb in the Butasport newspaper.“When you are a striker, the most important thing is that you are on the field, that is my vision. I don’t think he has been on the field that long and has had opportunities. I was in that situation in Newcastle. You only get the chance five minutes, ten, fifteen, twenty minutes, and during that time you literally try to do what you must to show everyone that you are worth it, especially when you cost a lot of money (60 million). You want to do everything and you burn in that desire “, Mitrovic says. Jovic has only played three minutes in the last seven league games, in the last three he was not even called …last_img read more
