Luka Jovic's personal trainer, Bojan Custic, speaks about the future of the young forward at Real Madrid.
Luka Jovic dreams of great days at Santiago Bernabeu according to his personal trainer, Bojan Custic, as doubts over the forward's future rise.
Jovic has actually tried hard to live up to the expectations since his arrival at Real Madrid for a €60million from Eintracht Frankfurt, where he managed to score 27 goals in 2018-19 season.
However at Real Madrid, the 22-year-old forward's goalscoring instinct has not fully realized as the Serbia international has only scored two goals in 24 appearances. Also there is talk that he might be replaced by Erling Haaland of Borussia Dortmund on a swap deal.
Arsenal have also shown interest in the young forward, who has been criticised for breaching self-isolation procedures in Serbia amid the coronavirus pandemic.
But Custic told Diario AS: "He has told me that he only wants to triumph at Real Madrid, have a great career and for the Bernabeu to chant his name. And he is sure that he is going to achieve all of that.
"A lot of his team-mates are talking with him and trying to help him and he is absolutely fine. He is going to demonstrate his true potential, he just needs to be patient."
LaLiga was suspended last month due to COVID-19 but Jovic has tried to stay fit for when, and if, the 2019-20 campaign resumes.
"He is in top shape and he feels healthy and well in every sense," Custic said. "Luka trains at home for three hours every day. Every morning we have a one-hour session and in the afternoon, two hours of high-intensity training, a physically more demanding workout.
"He has a treadmill at home, an exercise bike as well as other training equipment so we use all of that for our training sessions. We have been doing workouts that are specifically designed for footballers - thinking about the movements they make and what kind of exercise is required.
"Every 14 days we revise how his training sessions have gone and analyse his level of fitness."
