Former Eintracht Frankfurt coach and fellow Serb Dragoslav Stepanovic has slammed Real Madrid striker Luka Jovic for trying to ruin his career.

Jovic was widely criticised for disobeying quarantine rules when he left Madrid for Serbia.

The 22-year-old was all over the news after he broke coronavirus quarantine protocol in Madrid to make his way home and celebrate his girlfriend’s birthday.

Although, his family has come to his defence, Stepanovic has slammed the Real Madrid striker for his actions.

“He is the only man who does one hundred per cent to ruin his career!

“Jovic works against himself. He was lucky that Adi Hutter gave him a shot at Eintracht and then made the biggest transfer in Serbia’s history and went to Madrid. I can’t believe what the boy is doing to himself.”

Stepanovic added: “I read the media in Serbia and I know what life he had, that as a child he slept in his car with his father to wait until morning to train. What a sacrifice he made, and then this.

“I don’t know, Luka obviously doesn’t think about himself.

“When they tell you it’s a ban, you pretend you didn’t understand anything! You better shut up, don’t talk. I can’t believe he did something like this.”

The Los Blancos are reportedly keen on offloading Jovic after a poor first season at Madrid, despite a big money move from Eintracht Frankfurt last summer.

Chelsea were linked with Jovic last season, and the Blues have been linked with signing him again during the summer transfer window.
