The Blancos legend has criticised the Serbian striker for failing to grasp his opportunities at Santiago Bernabeu with both hands

Luka Jovic has not fully embraced the idea of succeeding at Real Madrid, according to Predrag Mijatovic.

The Serb was one of the most prolific strikers in European football last season as he recorded 27 goals in 48 outings across all competitions for Eintracht Frankfurt.

Madrid were impressed enough to fork out a reported €70 million (£63m/$80m) on the 22-year-old last June, and big things were expected of the highly-rated forward upon his arrival at Santiago Bernabeu.

However, he has endured a nightmare first season in the Spanish capital, scoring just twice in 24 appearances while failing to earn a regular place in Zinedine Zidane’s line-up ahead of Karim Benzema.

Madrid are already being tipped to cut their losses on Jovic ahead of the summer transfer window, with Arsenal reportedly among those ready to offer him a lifeline.
