Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic faces Serbian trial for virus isolation breach

8

Real Madrid striker could face a six-month prison sentence in his native Serbia for allegedly breaching mandatory COVID-19 self- measures, state prosecutors said in a statement on Friday. In March, the Spanish team allowed the striker to leave Madrid in order to spend time with his young family, but local media reported that , 23, was seen walking around Belgrade and enjoying drinks with fellow footballers.

Serbian prosecutors are asking the court for the sentence for “leaving place of residence” even though he came from a “country with high virus transmission”. Under the regulations at the time, he was required to self-isolate for two weeks.

Prosecutors are bringing the Jovic’s case to court after he refused to pay EUR30,000 ($35,556) for humanitarian purposes.
