Real Madrid outcast Jovic returns to Eintracht Frankfurt on loan

09:25 1/14/21 The Serbian frontman will spend the second half of the 2020-21 campaign in familiar surroundings at Deutsche Bank Park

Jovic established himself as one of the most prolific strikers in the Bundesliga during his first spell with Frankfurt, but has struggled to live up to the same high standards in the Spanish capital.

The 23-year-old has only scored twice in 32 games for Madrid to date, and has been restricted to just five appearances for the club under Zinedine Zidane in 2020-21.

He will now hope to rediscover his best form in familiar surroundings, with Frankfurt sporting director Fredi Bobic delighted to see a talismanic figure retrace his steps after a frustrating period in La Liga .

Jovic could be in line to feature when Frankfurt play host to Schalke in the Bundesliga on Sunday night.

Adi Hutter's side are currently sitting in ninth in the German top-flight, just five points adrift of the Champions League places, but they were knocked out of the DFB Pokal at the second round stage after suffering a 4-1 thrashing at the hands of Bayer Leverkusen on Tuesday.
