Real Madrid‘s summer signing Luka Jovic has laughed off reports suggesting he could be heading out of the club in the very same window.
The former Eintracht Frankfurt striker was sidelined for 10 days due to a knock during Madrid’s pre-season involvements. It is believed that coach Zinedine Zidane is not in favour of starting the Bundesliga star in every game.
Some reports even claimed that he could be sent away on loan after failing to impress his new manager. Jovic dismissed these claims on the premise that he enjoys the manager’s support.
“[Zidane] believes in me and his story has not changed during this time as we work together,” he told Novosti.
“I am learning from him day by day, which I am very pleased with, because he, as a player and as a coach, is at the very top of world football.
“I laughed at some of the stories.
“The media will always come up with such stories.
“I have been used to all kinds of comments since the beginning of my career, I have come to terms with the fact that they will always be there.
“Time will tell what is true.
“I try not to read newspaper articles [or] reply to messages of this type, and to concentrate only on my game.
“That was the best thing, and that is why this period has gone through quite successfully, without much tension.”
