Liverpool midfielder regrets moving to England

Jovanovic joined Liverpool on a free transfer from Belgian side Standard Liege but has failed to make an impact at Anfield.

Jovanovic told Sportske: “If I’m completly honest, I must say that I regulary think about this. If I would move to Italy or Germany I would be happier than in England – my life would be nicer.

“And also for my career it would be better to play in Serie A or the Bundesliga.

“In Belgium I was living in an area where there were so many people from Serbia and my life was different, more dynamic.

“Liverpool is such a different place. I’m here alone, without anybody. I’m just a very lonely stranger.

“In my months here I haven’t met anybody from my country. If I wouldn’t have my wife and my kids I just couldn’t speak Serbian with anybody.

“But Liverpool is of course a club which you can’t refuse.”

“My only regret is, that the coach, who brought me at Anfield, left the club even before my arrival,” he added.

“If Rafa Benitez would have stayed in Liverpool I believe everything would be different for me.

“There were 15 other clubs which followed me but I chose Liverpool and make a mistake.”
