Luka Jovic reveals how Zinedine Zidane insisted on him wearing the white jersey
- The striker moved to the Bernabeu during the summer.
- Luka opened up on the complicated negotiations process with the talks almost breaking down.
- Zidane wanted Jovic to come and pushed for the summer move with Eintracht Frankfurt agreeing to let him go for 60 million euros.
Luka Jovic has spoken to Serbian TV program Licno Nezvanicno about his arrival to the Santiago Bernabeu with the talks between our club and the Bundesliga side proving to be quite uneasy throughout the summer. According to the player, Zidane was the sole reason for his move actually happening.
"Zinedine Zidane is the one who wanted me at Real Madrid. The negotiations were very complicated between my club and Real Madrid, they almost broke down, but it was Zidane who insisted for me to wear this jersey," said the striker during the interview.
Despite having scored only one goal in La Liga during his 11 appearances, the Serbian remains calm and optimistic about his prospects at the Casa Blanca. Everyone should understand it is nearly impossible to compete with the current Karim Benzema and it's normal to see Zidane always starting the Frenchman.
However, Luka is patient and is ready to wait for his chance. With matches against Espanyol and Valencia coming up we can be pretty sure that the manager is going to give Jovic an opportunity to showcase his abilities once more.
