Real Madrid’s Luka Jovic suffers broken leg injury


Real Madrid attacker Luka Jovic has fracture his right heel after returning to Spain from the coronavirus lockdown

Jovic was back at Madrid’s Valdebebas base on Wednesday for Covid-19 tests and medical examinations as Real stepped up their preparations for a return to training on Monday.

But if LaLiga does get back under way as planned in June, the 22-year-old now looks unlikely to be fit.

But, on Friday, the Spanish club announced the news on their official website: “After the tests carried out today on our player Luka Jović by the Real Madrid Medical Services, he was diagnosed with an extra-articular fracture in the calcaneus bone of the right foot.”

Real are due to return to training on Monday as part of the four-phase plan by LaLiga to resume the season after the coronavirus-imposed break, but Jovic will no longer be able to join his team-mates.

The 22-year-old already made headlines during the crisis when he broke lockdown rules in his native Serbia after returning from Madrid back in March.

The Serbian international, a €60million signing from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer, has scored just two goals in 24 appearances so far for Zinedine Zidane’s side.
