Jovic Catches Heat for Remarks About Fiorentina Spell

Luka Jovic came under fire for suggesting he was using Fiorentina to restore his reputation, and he was forced to backpedal afterward. The striker gave an interview to the Serbian site ATV (via DAZN).

“I made a big sacrifice by accepting the Viola’s offer. I think they are a nice launching pad to rediscover my best form and return to a big club. This decision was made after carefully evaluating every proposal at the time.”

The marksman looked back at this stint at Real Madrid.

“It was a great experience for me and I’m very honored to have played in the most prestigious club in the world. However, I think I joined too soon, as Karim Benzema bloomed and deservedly won the Balloon d’or. I was unlucky at first. Then the pandemic hit, and some injuries slowed me down.”

After the Fiorentina fans started reacting bitterly on social media, Jovic issued a retraction.

“I’m sorry if my words were misinterpreted by the media. I feel great here. My sole focus is on the next matches. I don’t recall a time when I was happier and more satisfied. As for my future plans, the only thing I can say is that I will continue to give my best to reach our goals and that I hope to have a major impact here.”

“This is a very important team, and a few of the most well-known footballers starred here. I wish to join the list and to prove I deserve it on the pitch, showing my respect for this jersey.”
