Luka Jovic (22 years old) is in luck, as he will finally return to play for Serbia. Although due to the risk of a quarantine in Spain after the selection window he was going to fall from a call in which he had been included, Real Madrid, the Serbian Football Federation (SRB) and the footballer have reached an agreement for him to move. In the next few hours he will join the concentration, thus seeing his wish fulfilled.
In this way, the striker will not be in the preparation of Valdebebas, which starts this Monday, and, after almost a year, he will return to his country’s team. His last call was in September 2019, and that did not end very well. He barely played 3 minutes of the first game, against Portugal, and was absent from the second in the middle of controversy. Despite the fact that the SRB announced that “he suffered a relapse of the injury with which he came to the preparation,” several reports indicated that he had left angry at his lack of prominence.
On September 3 and 6, against Russia and Turkey, respectively, Serbia begin their career in League B of the League of Nations. The presence of the madridista in these two days of the tournament will mean that he will miss at least part of the preseason with Real Madrid. The striker, however, has been working on his own during the holidays , even moving his personal trainer to Mallorca.
