The 21-year-old has signed with Real Madrid, leaving Eintracht Frankfurt in a move that will surely make his abilities grow.

21-year-old Serbian striker Luka Jovic left Eintracht Frankfurt to sign for Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga.

And he has yet to play a single game with Los Blancos, but he admits his talent is scoring goals.

“Sometimes I think I was just born with it. Everyone in this life has certain talents, and I think mine is scoring goals,” he was quoted by Goal.

“I don’t know how I ended up playing as a striker, but as far back as I can remember I’ve always been obsessed with scoring.”

“When I was a child, I used to have these two VHS tapes of all the goals from every single World Cup up to 2006, I think,” he said.

“I remember being mesmerized by Roger Milla from Cameroon at the ’90 World Cup, and of course Ronaldo – the original Ronaldo.”

He explained: “I was obsessed with how he did that step-over dribble against goalkeepers. I remember it being so fast, like a magician’s trick, and I would practice how to do it at home.”

“Ronaldo would play football with such ease, almost as if he was at 30%, and I thought it was incredible. His style and confidence left a mark on me.”

“I guess my coaches must have seen that instinct in me because they put me at striker from my very first steps in football,” he concluded.
