A former Real Madrid flop coach Luka Jovic is less than impressed with the striker’s antics, as the Serb finds himself in hot water after bypassing the corona virus lockdown to visit his girlfriend.
The Bernabeu striker’s time started badly after his £ 54 million summer move from Eintracht Frankfurt, netted just twice and fell out of favor with Zinedine Zidane.
He was completely left out of the Madrid squad for the last three La Liga games of the Spanish giants, a point interrupted by the corona virus crisis that ended the league.

Rather than settle in isolation like his colleagues, Jovic then flew back to Serbia to visit his pregnant girlfriend Sofija Milosevic.
The 22-year-old is now under investigation and may face a prison sentence, putting his future at Madrid into doubt after just a year and frustrating his old Frankfurt coach Dragoslav Stepanovic.
“He’s the only guy doing 100 percent to ruin his career,” Stepanovic said Kurir.
Jovic impressed Madrid last season with his form at the Eintracht Frankfurt before his big move
Jovic works against himself. He was lucky that Adi Hutter gave him a chance at the Eintracht and then made the biggest transfer in the history of Serbia and went to Madrid. I can’t believe what the boy is doing to himself.
“I read the media in Serbia and I know what life he had when he slept with his father in his car as a child to wait until morning to train.
“What a sacrifice he made, and then this. I don’t know, Luka is clearly not thinking about herself.

“When they tell you it’s a ban (self-isolation), pretend you don’t understand. You better shut up, don’t talk. I can’t believe he did anything like that. ‘
Jovic stood out by scoring 27 goals and giving seven assists while Frankfurt finished an impressive seventh in the Bundesliga last season, qualifying for the Europa League.
However, he could be set on an early exit from Zidane’s squad, with Chelsea and Arsenal aimed at him.
