Real Madrid: Fans react to report stating Luka Jovic is the least productive forward signing

Real Madrid fans have been reacting angrily to a recent report that appears to have criticised Luka Jovic’s contribution to the club on Twitter.

According to Marca, as relayed by Infinite Madrid, the Serbia international is the least productive forward signing in recent years, with the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Klaas-Jan Huntelaar both having hit the net and getting off to a quicker start.

However, those claims by the newspaper appear to have sent some of the club’s fans on Twitter into overdrive with many of them leaping to the defence of their initial €65m (£56.7m) summer arrival (The Guardian).

Indeed, Jovic has been featured rather sparingly by Zinedine Zidane since arriving at the Santiago Bernabeu, as he has played just seven times for the La Liga giants, with just two appearances having come from the start (Transfermarkt).

According to data collected by WhoScored, the 21-year-old has been afforded just 218 minutes on the pitch, in which he has only managed to achieve a total of 1.3 shots per game in top-flight Spanish competition, with 1.2 of those coming from inside the penalty area.

Fans appear to have taken exception to the report by Marca and have slammed it by suggesting that was always going to happen with his limited match action.

Here are just some of their reactions to it on Twitter…
