Luka Jovic believes he was unlucky during a disappointing spell at Real Madrid that saw him score just two goals in a season and a half.

The 23-year-old returned toEintracht Frankfurt earlier this month on a loan untilthe end of the season, and has immediately picked up where he left off with the Bundesliga club.

Jovic has scored three goals in three games sofar, despite all those appearances coming off the bench. In 76 minutes of play, the Serbian has exceeded his goal total from 32 games with Madrid.

In a press conference on Tuesday, the striker saidthat he felt right back at home withhis former side.

“I am very happy to be back. I feel very comfortable and that can be seen on the pitch,” Jovic said.”I scored two goals during my time at Real Madrid and now I have three here.”

While his time in Madrid did not go according to plan, Jovic still believes he learned a lot during his spell in the Spanish capital.

“I was unlucky at Real Madrid,” he continued.”The injuries harmed me and privately, it didn’t go well at all. I feel lucky to have been able to return to Frankfurt, where they have really welcomed me.

“I have been lucky to have been able to train every day with the best players in the world in Madrid. I have gained experience and I consider myself a better player today. Despite not having been able to have the continuity on the pitch, I take plenty of positives from Madrid.“

Jovic was asked to compare Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane and Frankfurt boss Adi Hutter, and the forward had plenty of praise for both.
