CorSport: Jovic, Milan-Fiorentina and a chance to ‘return the favour’

By Oliver Fisher -

Next Saturday’s game against Fiorentina will have a bit of added meaning for Luka Jovic given his summer move and his past in Florence, a report has outlined.

According to Corriere dello Sport (via PianetaMilan), Milan will be without the injured Rafael Leao and the suspended Olivier Giroud for the game against La Viola next weekend and that means there is a need to find goals from other sources.

Jovic has been promoted to a probable starter against Fiorentina given the selection issues in attack, and he will meet his former team again. The Serbian and Samuel Chukwueze are the only players in Pioli’s attack who have not yet scored a goal.

Jovic played with Fiorentina last season and scored 13 goals across all competitions but with Milan he is stuck on zero and has only made two starts, the last of which came during the victory against Genoa.

During Fiorentina-Milan last March, Jovic scored against the Rossoneri and the paper remarks that it is now time for him to ‘return the favour’.

  1. I’m not sure it’s just about playing time brother. He’s had years to rediscover his form since Germany and cannot. Also In the games he has played he has showed little in terms of tactical awareness, hold up play or any movement. The truth is no teams wanted this guy and Fiorentina were happy to cancel his contract so we could take him for free. He is also poorly placed in a 4-3-3 formation and only has had success in a 2-striker system. He should not have been signed in the first place and was only a desperate last minute signing by Furlani and Co when they screwed up by not securing many other available and affordable players like Thuram Lukaku and Taremi to name a few. So it’s not all on Jovic but he hasn’t exactly helped his cause by his weak form and general lax approach when he is in. So maybe he scores a goal here and there with starters minutes – but he’s not the player we needed. We needed more of a GUARANTEE and Jovic isn’t it.
