Milan Jovanovic - Welcome To Anfield
I wonder how he'll celebrate his first goal? ...
Liverpool today made the signing of the Serbian official after paperwork was finished at the clubs training ground Melwood.
Jovanovic has already had a claim to fame this summer after scoring the winner against a fantastic Germany side in the World Cup.
He was quoted today saying: "It is an honour for me to sign for one of the biggest clubs in football."
Jovanovic has had only four previous clubs, the 29 year old started his career at FK Vojvodina who are the second oldest club in Serbia. He then moved on to Shaktar Donetsk for one year before again moving on to Russia.
He spent 2 years at Lokomotiv Moscow and made just three appearances. It is his period at Standard Liege though that reignited interest in the striker. After signing in 2006 he scored 52 goals in 116 appearances... Not bad going even in the Belgian league.
His international career reads 10 goals to 29 appearances. From what he put on display in the World Cup i think it is fair to say that he is clearly a very strong and dominating forward, Jovanovic appears to be a bit of a mystery to most pundits because as mentioned before, analysis is usually based solely on his time at Standard Liege, however i think Rafael Benitez's farewell gift as it were will be a good asset to our ever thinning Liverpool side.
I for one can't wait to see him play.
