Real MadridTOThe Serbian does not want to throw in the towel despite his bad start at Madrid
Lto the first season ofLuka Jovic at Real MadridIt is not being by far the expected, nor by the club, much less by the player himself. Only two goals,very little continuity andan injury that added to certain extra sports episodes have placed him in a situation of uncertainty facing the next market. Because its performance has raised doubts and because there are teams interested in Serbian, both on loan and on purchase.
However,Jovicit is clear. His plan is to stay in theMadridand flip the omelette. With a very complicated injury that does not ensure that he can return in good condition before the end of this abnormal season, he knows that he must be patient. Different factors play in his favor. The investment made by theMadrid(60 million) is a double-edged sword, because expectations are very high, but it also represents a safe-conduct to allow him a second chance. Had there been less expense, it would have been easier to put it up for sale.
Similarly, the market makes it very difficult to buy a ‘9’ this summer, with the club’s plans increasingly focused on2021withHaaland and Mbapp.That a priori difficulty of reinforcing the position will benefit you. In addition, what convinced Real to sign him is still there, his scoring hatching just a year ago, when he caught the attentionof the greats of Europe, including the Bara.
There is another not inconsiderable element:Zinedine Zidane.The coach not only gave the O.K. to his incorporation in the spring of last year, but also took part in personally calling the player to convey everything that awaited him in theMadridif you decide to take the step. That call fromZizouJovic has it very present at the lowest moments of the course. In fact, Zidane himself wanted to take pressure off him for the month of January: “Jovic is the future, he will score many goals. “ Luck has not been on their side either. The sticks and the VAR have prevented him from adding three or four goals that surely would have helped him change the dynamics that led to the stop, at which timeZidaneI decided to relegate him to give a chance toMariano.
JovicYou also know that the beginnings inMadridsometimes they are not easy. And he has two examples in the current wardrobe. One is even close to Serbian:Luka modric. The Croatian, on the grounds that his first year was better than that of his namesake in Belgrade, also suffered for months to adapt to the team. In fact it cost him to earn the gap as the undisputed starter. The other isKarim Benzema, who came very young to the White House (21 years old, like Jovic) and who, although he also had a better first year (nine goals), suffered some other non-sporting episode, now completely forgotten.
ButLukaIt has a market. TheNaplesyou want it just as there is a team from theBundesligawho has asked about his transfer and another of thePremierthat you are willing to present an offer to take over your transfer. Powerful clubs to try to win a scorer, a specialty that is scarce in the market. However, Jovic, who signed six years with himMadrid, does not want to throw in the towel for a false start in the demanding race that is to wear the Real Madrid shirt.
