Luka Jović turned 23 today, and he has a new training regime in place to help him become a relevant player for Real Madrid.

English writer Max McKeown famously said, “All failure is failure to adapt, all success is successful adaptation.” How precise is this statement. It can be used in any context in life, and definitely in Real Madrid striker Luka Jović‘s case as he is certainly struggling to ‘adapt’ to the pressures that come along with wearing the Royal White jersey.

First of all, happy birthday to our Serbian striker. He turned 23 today. Moving on, Serbian media outlet Alo! have revealed Luka Jović’s training plan. By the looks of it, he seems to be recharged and intent on finding a place in Zinedine Zidane’s plans.

This comes after reports in Spain suggested last week that he has started to integrate more within the squad and is more active in training sessions. These reports from both Serbia and Spain present encouraging signs for a player who has amortized his €60 million value that Real Madrid paid for acquiring his services a year and a half ago.

According to the report, here is how Jović spends his day:

0930 hours – Breakfast

0945 hours – Activation treatment

1100 hours – Training with the Real Madrid squad under Zidane’s supervision

1300-1400 hours – Lunch

1900 hours – Second training session with a private trainer

2000 hours – Recovery after training (ice bath)

2100 hours – Dinner

Sharing the dressing room with an indispensable figure and one of the leaders of the team in Karim Benzema made the task already arduous for Luka Jović, but he wants to show Zidane and the fans that he is not going to end up being a flop at Real Madrid.

To make matters worse, he tested positive for COVID-19 days after he produced his most prolific displays as a footballer since joining Real Madrid in 2019, scoring three goals and registering two assists for Serbia during the November international break. Had he not tested positive for COVID-19, he could have started four games on the trot, at least.

Luka Jović has shown that he can handle the rigours of being a Real Madrid player, not to forget the burden of the €60 million that he brought along with him to Madrid. Although his time at the club could be attributed to some misfortune, he is ready to put everything behind him, more so amidst rumours of a possible loan to AC Milan.

This training regime makes one thing very clear, and this is that he values what it takes to represent Real Madrid. He is a very good footballer, he just needs to show that he belongs here. Well, the new regime coupled with his ambition, determination, and renaissance might propel him to heights one would laugh away considering his situation.
