More pressure for Jovic

The Serbian striker started for the first time against Bayern, but he did so due to the injury of his teammate André Silva, which overshadows him up front.


Luka Jovic, who returned to Eintracht through the big door with a double in less than half an hour, has not finished exploding. The Serbian forward on loan from Real Madrid has always played this season off the bench except for Saturday's league match at home to Bayern (2-1), where he started. In this match, the striker replaced the injured André Silva, elected player of the month for January in the entire Bundesliga, and played a more than discreet role.

Despite the victory, he did not shoot on goal and the Frankfurt supporters missed the voracity of the Portuguese, who has accumulated a fabulous 18 goals in 20 games. He is the second top scorer in the competition, after Lewandowski (26). Jovic, with three goals in total, seems far from starting if André Silva is fit (he injured his back but will return to training in the next few days). The reason is that coach Adi Hütter likes to play with a single striker. And it's going great for him. Eintracht is fourth in the Bundesliga, in the Champions zone, and accumulates 11 games in a row without losing, with 9 wins, 2 draws and a series of 5 consecutive wins that continues.In terms of delivery, Jovic cannot be blamed for a lack of pressure for every ball against Bayern. Of course, having stayed so far from the rival goal prevented him from embarrassing the leader just once. Merit to the visitors for presenting an advanced defensive line. His teammates looked for him with balls over the Bavarian rear but he failed to win the duels behind his back. The lack of filming in his Madrid journey and the lack of ownership with Eintracht torpedoes him in his quest to return to being the feared forward that he was in this same institution.Everything indicates that Jovic will return to sit on the bench next Friday against Werder Bremen. Hütter hopes Silva can return to training in the next few days. "It will not be long before he is on the field. André is certainly already between 80 and 85 percent. I hope that in the next one or two days he will fully recover and can start training," explained the coach.

Hütter is aware that Jovic wants to have a leading role in the team, as do the press and fans, but the coach of the German team is not at all funny to notice this pressure: "I will not let anyone tell me when to play."

He also spoke of the competition for the position between the two forwards: "As we are playing right now, the joy of one is the pain of the other. I see in each one's eyes how they feel. But I am responsible for the The team keeps scoring and winning. Therefore, I can perfectly assume that Luka is not entirely happy because he would have liked to have more minutes on the pitch. " We will see if its metamorphosis arrives before spring.
