Liverpool completes Jovanovic signing

Liverpool has confirmed the signing of Serbia forward Milan

Jovanovic on a three-year contract.

The 29-year-old joins from Standard Liege after his contract

with the Belgian club expired.

Jovanovic, who was part of Serbia’s World Cup squad, tells the

Liverpool website he “cannot wait” to work with new manager Roy

Hodgson.

The transfer was originally agreed while Rafael Benitez was

still in charge at Anfield.

Jovanovic added that he is “looking forward to joining up with

my new teammates on our Swiss training camp.”

Jovanovic spent four years with Liege after joining from

Lokomotiv Moscow.

He scored the winning goal in Serbia’s 1-0 win over eventual

semifinalist Germany in South Africa.
