Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic buzzing after 2-goal Eintracht Frankfurt return

Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic made a sensational return for Eintracht Frankfurt in victory over Schalke.

The Real Madrid loanee netted twice in the 28 minutes he spent on the pitch to earn his team a 3-1 win over Schalke.

"Amazing feeling! Victory, two goals, I couldn't have imagined a better comeback," Jovic wrote on Instagram afterwards.

"I hope this is only the beginning and that the best is yet to come. Thank you all for your support."

The Serbian also had touching messages for David Abraham, who is leaving Frankfurt to return to Argentina to look after his son, and a late Frankfurt supporter.

"I want to dedicate my first goal to a great professional, an amazing leader, a true friend, a great man that I've been honoured to share the field with, our captain David Abraham," Jovic added.

"The second goal I dedicate to a great Eintracht fan that has recently passed away and left his loving wife and three kids. Rest in Peace."
