Milan Jovanovic

2010-05-13 17:55
Age: 28
Position: Forward
Club: Milan

The team's top scorer in the qualifiers with five goals, dropped after the Euro 2008 failure and recalled by Antic only because of injuries to some key players, Jovanovic has a bag full of tricks and quick feet, and has been in top form since.

Jovanovic made his debut with FK Vojvodina during the 1999–2000 season. He spent most of his early career at Shakhtar Donetsk and Lokomotiv Moscow, before arriving at Standard Liège in 2006. At Standard Liège Jovanovic quickly became a fan favourite scoring 14 goals in his first season and earning the nickname "the snake" for his fast movement. Jovanovic was hugely successful in Belgium and on 13th January, 2010, was named as the Jupiler League's Player of the Year.

He is set to move to Liverpool at the start of the 2010/11 season.

He made his debut for the Serbian national team against Finland on 2 June 2007. Serbia won the match 2–0, with Jovanovic scoring Serbia's second goal.
