Chelsea transfer target Luka Jovic has been accused by his former coach of working hard to ruin his career.

He has struggled since his £54 million move to Real Madrid last summer, netting just twice and falling out of favour with Zinedine Zidane.

The Blues have been linked with the striker ahead of the summer transfer window.

“He is the only man who does 100 per cent to ruin his career,” his old Frankfurt coach Dragoslav Stepanovic told Kurir.

“Jovic works against himself. He was lucky that Adi Hutter gave him a shot at Eintracht and then made the biggest transfer in Serbia’s history and went to Madrid. I can’t believe what the boy is doing to himself.

“I read the media in Serbia and I know what life he had, that as a child he slept in his car with his father to wait until morning to train.

“What a sacrifice he made, and then this. I don’t know, Luka obviously doesn’t think about himself.

“When they tell you it’s a ban (self-isolation) you pretend you didn’t understand anything. You better shut up, don’t talk. I can’t believe he did something like this.”
