Real Madrid forward, Luka Jovic, has finally opened up on his struggle to hit top form at the club this season.
He had arrived at Santiago Bernabau in the Summer of 2019 as a high-profile transfer, from Eintracht Frankfurt, having impacted the German Bundesliga as one of the best young strikers in European football.
Since his switch to the Los Blancos, the Serbian international has failed to cement his name in the mouth of the fans in the Spanish capital.
He has just one La Liga goal to show for his efforts in the 2019-20 season. In a football interview with ‘Sports Afternoon’ hostess, Kristina, Luka Jovic said he was unsure why he found goalscoring so difficult for his new club.
"Honestly, I'm not happy with the season, at least until now. First because I can be better. Sometimes on YouTube I see videos of me last year, and I ask myself 'what happened?'
"But we all know that Real Madrid is a huge club and it's difficult for the players with experience to get used to it. And even more for 21-year-olds they have paid €60 million for. The pressure is huge, I have fought until now without success. But hope the situation changes.
"There is a negative atmosphere when people speak about my form at Real Madrid, but I believe that I will show people the reason why I am here."
Real Madrid signed the striker from Frankfurt. It was deemed a massive coup, as Jovic was already linked with a number of big-name clubs across the continent. He spent the 2018-19 season on loan at Frankfurt from Benfica and scored 27 times in 48 appearances.
