Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic on Jovic to Real Madrid
Eintracht sporting director Fredi Bobic gave the following quotes following the Jovic deal:
Luka Jovic is a big loss for us. His explosiveness and scoring skills have spread throughout Europe and we’ve benefited from his goals over the past two years. But for us it was clear that there was a financial pain threshold.
For Eintracht Frankfurt this is a good and important transfer. We wish Luka only the best for his future. He has the best qualifications for a great career. And we are proud that we were able to support him along the way.
Vielen Dank für deinen Einsatz, Tormaschine! Alles Gude und viel Erfolg in Madrid! 🦅 pic.twitter.com/6wWSMeAGZZ
