Milan Awaits Signal from Luka Jovic as Stefano Pioli Places Trust in Him
Milan is eagerly awaiting a signal from Luka Jovic, the former Real Madrid player, as he has the full support and trust of Stefano Pioli. It is expected that Pioli will place his bet on Jovic for the next two Serie A matches, considering the absence of Giroud due to suspension.
Jovic’s Lackluster Performance So Far
Up until now, Jovic has made seven appearances for Milan, with only two of them as a starter. Unfortunately, he has yet to make an impact in the Champions League, failing to score any goals or provide any assists.
Analyzing Jovic’s Performance
Italian newspaper ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’ recently analyzed Jovic’s performance, revealing that he has only managed two shots on goal in 223 minutes of play. The newspaper also calculated that Jovic’s salary has cost Fiorentina and Milan approximately one million euros over the past five months, with each shot on goal equating to a cost of 500,000 euros.
A Decisive Moment for Jovic
As Jovic faces a crucial turning point in his career, Pioli will closely monitor his progress in training. If Jovic shows promising signs, he will be given the opportunity to lead the forward line against his former team, Fiorentina, and Frosinone, with Okafor as a potential alternative.
Jovic’s Uncertain Future
Milan acquired Jovic on a free transfer after missing out on the opportunity to sign Taremi. However, his future at the club remains uncertain, as he could potentially leave during the January transfer window. It will ultimately depend on his performance in the upcoming weeks.
A Chance for Jovic to Shine
During the recent international break, Jovic had the opportunity to train intensively, as he was not included in the Serbian squad. This break served as an ideal time for him to reach his peak form. The next two crucial matches will determine his short-term future at Milan.
