Jovic's father Milan admitted his son did return to Serbia, but stressed that pictures on social media were from his time in Spain.

He explained per Marca: "Luka had two [coronavirus] tests done and he tested negative on both.

"That's why he thought he could come to Serbia.

"Now it seems like he's a major criminal. If he has to go to jail, then he goes.

"I'm totally in agreement with the [Serbian] president and prime minster [for threatening criminal charges], but only if he's guilty.

"I would support that decision if he'd done something wrong, but he arrived in Belgrade and stayed at home.

"[His girlfriend] Sofia is pregnant and she couldn't go out [to celebrate her birthday].

"Some photos have emerged of the two out having fun, but they were from Spain."

Madrid players had been told to isolate at the time as the virus spread in their basketball team.

A weakened Shakhtar stunned Madrid with three first-half goals and manager Zinedine Zidane explained after the game that he took full responsibility.

"I am responsible and since the first half was negative, I have not done something right," he told reporters per Goal.

"The first goal changed everything and [ultimately] cost us, but this [Champions League campaign] has just begun and we are not going to give up."
