‘When he finally scores, everything will change’: Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane backs Luka Jovic to hit form once he finds the net after scoring just one goal since £62m summer move

Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has backed Luka Jovic to hit form once he finds the net after scoring just one goal since his £62million summer move.

The 22-year-old made the move to the Bernabeu last summer from Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. 

However the forward has struggled to impress for the LaLiga giants in his debut campaign but was given a chance to shine in Madrid’s 4-0 win over Real Zaragoza in the Copa del Rey on Wednesday night.

Jovic failed to get on the scoresheet and was replaced in the 73rd minute by Karim Benzema, who scored six minutes after entering the fray.

But Madrid boss Zindane believes the Serbia international will hit the ground running once he finds the back of the net.

‘I’d like him to score, but he’ll get there if he keeps working,’ Zidane said following the victory.

‘He’s young, he’s just arrived and the good thing is that he’s in a team where there are a lot of big players and he has to adapt.

‘The delicate moment will be good for him – when he finally scores, everything will change.’
