Borja Mayoral stirred controversy this week after revealing that Real Madrid preferred to retain his services over Luka Jovic. There had been reports throughout the summer providing some degree of credence to Mayoral’s statements. The former caterano later clarified his statements, but the overall sentiment will leave former teammate Luka Jovic disappointed.

Approached by El Chiringuito TV in the airport upon his return from international duty, Jovic was asked how he felt about Mayoral’s comments. “I have no comment. Maybe that’s right. Ask the club, don’t ask me,” Jovic replied.

The Serbian was short and blunt in his response and rightly so. He will in no doubt feel slighted by seeing those remarks in the press. Luka Jovic has earned two starts with Real Madrid since the season started and one start with Serbia. He has yet to score, but will be eager to get his career back on track. Will he have the opportunity to prove all those who doubted him wrong? Time will tell.
