Real Madrid striker, Luka Jovic tests positive for Coronavirus

Real Madrid have confirmed that striker Luka Jovic has tested positive for Covid-19, becoming the fifth player at the club to contract the virus.

 

The former Benfica forward, 22, tested positive in a PCR test carried out by his club following his return from international duty with Serbia.

A statement from the Spanish champions read: “Real Madrid informs that our player Luka Jovic has given a positive result in the Covid-19 tests carried out on Friday morning.”

 

Jovic will now go into a period of self-isolation.

 

This comes a month after the striker escaped a six-month prison sentence in Serbia for breaking coronavirus rules after flying home to celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday in Belgrade.

At that time, Jovic issued an apology, saying: ‘On arrival back in Serbia they tested me and I was negative. It’s a shame others were not professional in their work and did not give me concrete instructions on how I should behave during isolation.

 

‘I ask forgiveness from everyone if in some way I have put anyone in danger. I hope together we can all get over this. Serbia has my complete support, we will beat this together.’
