Jovanovic admits Man Utd defender Vidic influenced Liverpool choice

Milan Jovanovic admits Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic had a hand in his move to Liverpool.

The Serbia star penned a three-year deal with Liverpool earlier this month to join the club from Standard Liege - and he admits he's already picked the brains of Vidic in an attempt to ready himself for the challenges in store.

"I know it's a difficult championship here," Jovanovic told liverpoolfc.tv. "Vidic told me there is a lot running, it's physical and you need quick thinking. That is no problem for me.

"I already feel the difference in training in English football compared to European football."

He added: "Vidic has much respect for Liverpool. He paid Liverpool a big compliment. I'm sure we will fight on the field, but after the game we are big friends.

"I'm looking forward to the future and will be working hard to win trophies for Liverpool. I expect to have a very successful time here."
