New Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic has laughed off rumours linking him with a loan move away from Real Madrid. According to recent reports, the ex-Frankfurt striker was being linked with a loan move after Zinedine Zidane’s rumoured unhappiness regarding his preseason performances.
Jovic joined Los Blancos in a £65m deal from Frankfurt this summer.
Speaking on the situation, Jovic said,
“Stories like that [of me moving on loan] make me laugh, as the media will always engage in such stories.”
“I have been used to all kinds of rumours since the beginning of my professional career. I have accepted the fact that they can always be there, and time will tell which ones are true. [Zidane] believes in me and his opinion hasn’t changed during the time that we’ve been working together.”
“I am learning from him day by day and I am very satisfied because he is, as a player and coach, one of the best in world football.”
As for his goals at Madrid, Jovic declared,
“I am ready to do my best and offer everything I can. I don’t expect to play immediately, but I will reach my targets through hard work and dedication.”
“Real Madrid’s ambition is always [to win] the titles and the time is approaching when we will show our real strength and what we can do.”
