There is nothing better than scoring goals when you are a striker, and when you move to a new club, the best way to introduce yourself to the fans is by continuously netting goal after goal.

Well that is what Stevan Jovetic is currently doing at Inter Milan. Alright he's only played two games, but he's already bagged himself three goals and is currently the club's only goalscorer this season.

Two games and two wins for Roberto Mancini's side is down to the three goals scored by Jovetic in their 1-0 and 2-1 wins respectively over Atalanta and Capri.

Jovetic's Struggles at City

The 25-year-old agreed to return to Serie A after spending two years in the Premier League with Manchester City, but due to injury problems and competition for places, he struggled for game-time at the Etihad Stadium and was often left on the sidelines.

During his two years there, the Montenegro international only managed to net eight Premier League goals in 28 appearances.

The final nail in his coffin at City came when Manuel Pellegrini splashed the cash on Wilfried Bony from January and immediately swapped the two in his Champions League squad, leaving Jovetic completely out.

Return to Italy

Jovetic then decided to leave Manchester City and agreed terms with Inter Milan over an 18-month loan deal, which could be made permanent at the end, which is looking very likely considering his flying start.

Jovetic worked with Mancini in England and he was one of the deciding factors in the move being finalised.

It's the second time the Montenegro international has plied his trade in Serie A after his initial spell with Fiorentina.

During his five years at Viola, the 25-year-old made 116 league appearances and scored 35 goals, becoming a fan favourite before he chose to leave to join City.

However, he is back in Italian football now and he is already relishing the role at Inter with three goals in his first two games.

If injuries can stay away from the striker, it looks like Mancini may have brought in a real talent for the San Siro side, and potentially a player who could fire them back into Europe.
