Stevan Jovetic eager to prove his worth

New, comment

Jovetic has been disappointing by his own standards (as well as everybody else's) and wants to do better next season.

If you were to look at the attackers Roberto Mancini has at his disposal it would be easy to think that scoring goals would not be a problem for his team. With Mauro Icardi, Eder, Rodrigo Palacio, and Stevan Jovetic all in the squad goals should be raining down at the San Siro. Unfortunately only one of those strikers has really showed up this season and Icardi has had to pretty much carry the team. This week JoJo had an interview where he talked about both his and the teams performances this season, and looked to a future that hopefully sees himself still playing for the Nerazzurri.

The Montenegrin talked about how he expected to score more goals this season (he currently has 6 goals in 25 appearances) and because of this he would only rate his season as a 5 out of 10. He dismissed any ideas of tension between himself and Mancini and himself and Icardi saying that there is chemistry between the two attackers and since he prefers to play behind or next to another striker there is no reason they cannot play together.

Jovetic also looked towards the future in this interview. He expressed his desire to stay at Inter next season though he understands that the decision is up to the club. The 26 year old also talked up his former teammates, Yaya Toure and Pablo Zabaleta. There was talk that Inter sent representatives to the match yesterday in Madrid to watch them play and Jovetic thought that having the two of them at Inter would only improve Mancini's side.

It is nice to hear that Jovetic is willing to admit that this season was poor for him and even better to hear that he wants to stick around and make a better impression to the Inter fans. It currently looks like if somebody makes an offer for him in the summer then Jovetic will leave but the club might just be convinced to give him another chance to show that the €14.5m the club will be obligated to spend to buy him is worth it.
