REAL MADRID striker Luka Jovic could be facing six months in jail, reports claim.
The Serbian is in hot water in his native country for allegedly breaking lockdown rules back in March. And according to El Partidazo de Cope, Serbian prosecutors are demanding that he be sentenced to six months in jail for ‘not complying with health protocols after his return from Spain’.
Jovic, 22, is believed to have travelled from Madrid to Belgrade in order to visit pregnant girlfriend Sofija Milosevic, 30.
Pictures circulated on social media of the couple supposedly walking the streets of Serbia’s capital city. According to the Madrid star’s father Milan, the snaps were actually taken in Spain, but he did admit that his son had returned to his native country.
He told Marca: “Luka had two [coronavirus] tests done and he tested negative on both. “That’s why he thought he could come to Serbia. “Now it seems like he’s a major criminal.
If he has to go to jail, then he goes. “I’m totally in agreement with the [Serbian] president and prime minster [for threatening criminal charges], but only if he’s guilty.
“I would support that decision if he’d done something wrong, but he arrived in Belgrade and stayed at home. “[His girlfriend] Sofia is pregnant and she couldn’t go out [to celebrate her birthday].
“Some photos have emerged of the two out having fun, but they were from Spain.”
Madrid stars had been told to self-isolate after a member of the club’s basketball team had tested positive for Covid-19. But Los Blancos later revealed that Jovic was allowed to travel back to Serbia for medical reasons.
