Liverpool Signed Milan Jovanovic

Liverpool has completed the Milan Jovanovic signing today as the former Standard Liege player joined the Merseyside club on a free transfer. The 29-year-old Serbia international would join the club’s pre-season training very soon.

Milan Jovanovic was a Liverpool target when Rafael Benitez was at the helm of the club. The Serbian is well-known for his versatility as he can play as a winger as well as a striker. So, Roy Hodgson can find two options in Jovanovic. The player’s contract with Standard Liege expired at the end of the last season and he became a free agent.

Milan Jovanovic is pretty much delighted after joining Liverpool on a 3-year contract.

Jovanovic said to the media, “It is an honour for me to sign for one of the biggest clubs in football. I cannot wait to start working with the manager and I'm looking forward to joining up with my new team-mates on our Swiss training camp.”

No doubt, the ‘free agent’ status of Milan Jovanovic was enticing for the cash trapped Liverpool as they are now going through a financial problem.

Milan Jovanovic recently scored a famous goal in Serbia’s 1-0 surprising victory over Germany in the World Cup. Moreover, his recent club form is also very impressive. He joined Standard Liege from Lokomotiv Moscow in 2006, and scored 52 goals in 116 league matches.
