Real Madrid coach Zidane admits Eintracht Frankfurt bound Jovic has struggled

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane admits Luka Jovic has struggled in Spain.

Jovic is set return to his former team Eintracht Frankfurt and Zidane admitted that the Serbia international has had adaptation issues following his move from the Bundesliga side.

"Luka Jovic is still with us," Zidane added. "They didn't tell me anything at the moment. We'll see what happens.

"He is a striker who scores goals. This is what we want from Luka, but as a forward. He was 21 years old [when he joined], he was young.

"He has not been very lucky, he has had difficulty adapting and [with] injuries.

"He has to learn many things, but he will always have his qualities."
