Luka Jovic was once again the decisive man as AC Milan secured a comeback win against Frosinone last night at the Stadio Benito Stirpe.
This morning’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport (seen below) recalls that Jovic came on in the 80th minute and only needed one minute to score Milan’s winning goal, firing in with a low shot from inside the box.
It wasn’t a simple match for the Rossoneri, but once again Stefano Pioli’s substitutions were decisive and turned the match around, a bit like what happened for example in Udine two weeks ago.
Jovic began his explosion in the beginning of December and he has not stopped, with five goals in the league and two in the Coppa Italia. But there is an even more impressive figure: the Serbian scores a goal every 103 minutes, almost one per game.
He is the most effective player by that metric, given Olivier Giroud scores every 170′, Noah Okafor every 119′, Christian Pulisic every 300′ and Rafael Leao every 342′.
The best in the world are not that far away: Mbappé scores every 83 minutes, Haaland and Lautaro every 99 minutes, while Lewandowski scores once every 169 minutes.
What about his future? Jovic made it clear after the game that he is happy where he is: “I’m happy because I can help the team. I always work to be ready, this 2024 has started off great, I’m proud of the victory, we are strong. Napoli? It will be a difficult match but we are ready because we are a big family.”
