Real Madrid’s big money summer signing Luka Jović has come under fire for flying from Spain to Serbia to be with his model girlfriend during the coronavirus lockdown.
The €60 striker has since claimed that he did not know “how to behave in self-isolation” and blamed club staff for not telling him that he wasn’t allowed to fly to another country:
While in Spain, I tested negative for coronavirus, and I decided to travel to Serbia to help and support our people and be close to my family, in agreement with my club.
When I landed in Serbia, I again tested negative for coronavirus. I am very sorry that some people did their job unprofessionally and did not give me the correct instructions on how to behave in self-isolation.
The player now reportedly faces sanctions from Real Madrid and even a fine or time in prison.
His dad agrees:
If he has to go to prison, let him go. I agree completely with the president and the prime minister, but only if he’s guilty of wrongdoing.
