Real Madrid player, Luka Jovic, is having a bad time as he risks going to jail for breaking coronavirus quarantine to be with his model girlfriend, Sofija Milosevic, in Serbia.
Jovic flew from Spain to Serbia after he was examined by Real Madrid’s medical department.
In his apology, he said: “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.
He continued: “In Spain, I was allowed to go to a pharmacy and a supermarket so I could get the groceries I needed, which is not the case here. I apologise to everyone if I have endangered them in some way and I hope that together we can manage to overcome all this.”
However, Serbian President, Aleksandar Vucic, has reportedly stated that Jovic is under investigation for potentially putting others at risk.
Serbian Prime Minister Ana Brnabic reportedly said: “We have negative examples of football stars who earn millions abroad and when they come back to Serbia, they don’t self-isolate as is obligatory.”
Meanwhile, Jovic’s father, Milan, recently addressed the criticism and weighed in on possible jail time.
“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,” Milan said.
