Real Madrid forward Jovic tests positive for Coronavirus

Real Madrid forward Luka Jovic is set to miss a number of important games for Real Madrid after testing positive for Coronavirus (COVID-19).

Luka Jovic has tested positive for coronavirus after returning from international duty with Serbia and scored twice as they defeated Russia 5-0 on Wednesday in Belgrade.

Jovic is now set to miss Saturday’s visit to Villarreal in LaLiga and Wednesday’s Champions League clash with Inter at San Siro.

In a statement released on Friday, the Spanish champions confirmed the player’s positive reading, and he will be unable to train with team-mates as he self isolates until he posts a negative reading.

It read: ‘Real Madrid CF would like to inform that our player Luka Jovic has given a positive result in the Covid-19 tests carried out on Friday morning.’

Madrid had feared Jovic would produce a positive test when it was revealed that three of his international team-mates in Sergej Milinkovic-Savic, Dorde Nikolic, and Darko Lazovic, as well as a team physio, had also produced positive results.

Real Madrid have already been hit with a spate of coronavirus infections this season including in recent weeks Eden Hazard, Casemiro and Eder Militao but all have recovered and are back in first-team training.
