Next Serbian professional violates corona virus requirements
April 4 update: Serbian soccer player Aleksandar Prijovic was arrested in Belgrade for violating the ban on going out during the Corona crisis. Contrary to the regulations, he had met with 19 other people in a hotel, according to a police report on Saturday.

Prijovic is the second Serbian football professional after Luka Jovic to break the rules in force in Belgrade due to the coronavirus pandemic. Former Bundesliga player Jovic was caught outside his apartment just two weeks ago, according to the state news agency Tanjug, despite two weeks of quarantine after arriving from Madrid. Serbian tabloids like "Blic" had accused the Real player of celebrating in the capital. Jovic, on the other hand, had spoken of going to the pharmacy.
"Do you want to kill us all?" - Luka Jovic and Neymar don't care about corona rules
News from March 21:
Belgrade / Paris - "Hey boy, do you want to kill us all?" Asked the Belgrade tabloid, Kurir indignantly. Luka Jovic's ignorance in the current situation is actually unprecedented. Despite the coronavirus pandemic, curfew and the urgent instruction to avoid social contacts, the real professional celebrated in a wet mood at a birthday party with girlfriend Sofija in Belgrade.
An act full of indifference that is likely to permanently damage the striker's image. Because criticism hails from the very top. The choice of words is unusually hard for politicians. "They make millions and ignore such important instructions," Prime Minister Ana Brnabic criticized the striker's clichéd behavior.
Corona in football: Jovic under fire - "People's lives more important than his millions"
President Aleksandar Vucic even threatens his prominent compatriot with the police. "If he leaves his apartment without permission, he will be arrested. It should then be clear to him that people's lives here are more important than his millions, ”explains the head of state. In Serbia, you can currently only leave your home between 8 p.m. and 5 a.m. in an emergency.
The striker's reaction to the public branding is disturbing. Instead of showing remorse, he blithely blames his scandalous behavior and immediately passes it on to others. “ Some people didn't do their job professionally and didn't give me specific instructions, ” he says.
Jovic's father also told the daily Blic that the club had given permission to travel to Belgrade after his son tested negative for the corona virus. Nevertheless, after returning to the Spanish capital, Jovic will probably be asked to pay. Those responsible should already discuss the amount of the sentence .
Corona in football: Neymar apparently resists curfew
Meanwhile, Neymar is also causing question marks due to his bipolar behavior. On Tuesday, the superstar had appealed to the reason of the people on Instagram: "It's not the virus that moves, people do it. "

Wise words of the Brazilian, whose meaning he should trample on himself a little later. Because Neymar is said to have resisted the curfew in Paris and fled to his homeland. According to the French daily Le Parisien , team-mate Thiago Silva set out with him. “France is badly affected by the epidemic. The supermarkets empty quickly and every exit is a risk of contamination for me and my family. So we decided to go back to Brazil, ”Silva's wife Isabelle wrote in an Instagram story.
The Spanish league and Ligue 1 are currently suspended. The Bundesliga is also paused. A revolutionary idea of the DFL should save the season. Meanwhile, two national players show exemplary behavior - they donate a million euros. Other major sporting events are also on the brink. The Tour de France could be canceled. * Olympia 2020 is also at risk. * DAZN commentator Hucke, on the other hand, is making positive headlines. His window reports make people laugh on the web. A continuation is planned.
Despite the Corona crisis, the Bundesliga absolutely wants to end its season - according to a virologist, this is possible, but only with special precautions.
