Jovic needs time at Real Madrid - Salgado


The Serbian striker has been backed by a club legend to eventually show his quality for Los Blancos. Former Real Madrid defender Michel Salgado insisted Luka Jovic is a "great striker," who needs time to settle in at the La Liga giant.

Jovic is still searching for his first goal for Madrid since arriving from Bundesliga outfit Eintracht Frankfurt in a reported €60 million deal (£52m/$66m).

The 21-year-old Serbian international arrived in the off-season after scoring 27 goals in 2018-19. However, he is yet to open his Madrid account and has not found the back of the net since a Euro 2020 qualifier in June.

"There's always critics at Real Madrid. A club that depends on victories, a gigantic club," Salgado said. "With a lot of pressure. But I think the last two scores have calmed the team.

"Zidane deserves all our respect, he won three Champions Leagues in a row. Something that no one has achieve in history, now arriving into Madrid in a difficult position from last year. The season just started, and they climb into the first positions. We've got to let them work. I know Real Madrid, I been there almost 11 years. I know how it works and it's important that the manager and the players are calm in a moment like these.

"As I said, being leaders brought clam to the team and the team will grow a lot from now on. Zidane deserves the confidence from us, supporters. I think he's doing a great job."
