Liverpool striker Milan Jovanovic has painted a lonely picture of his time at Merceyside, revealing he wishes he hadn’t come to England as the Serbian international fails to impress Kenny Dalglish.

“If I'm completely honest, I must say that I regularly think about this,” the striker told Sportske when asked if he regretted his move from Belgian side Standard Liege.

“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.”


The lack of Serbians surrounding Jovanovic has particularly affected the 30 year old, with the Liverpool striker finding life in Belgium was more vibrant.

"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."

Jovanovic attributes his unhappiness at Liverpool to a change in manager, hinting that Kenny Dalglish hasn’t been as accommodating as Rafael Benitez would have been.

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

"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."
