Jovanovic: Benitez departure wrecked my Liverpool chances

Milan Jovanovic believes Rafa Benitez's exit has wrecked his chances at Liverpool.

Benitez signed Jovanovic to a pre-contract, but had left by the time the striker officially signed from Standard Liege in June.

He said: "Liverpool is a club which you can’t refuse; my only regret is that the coach who brought me to Anfield left the club before my arrival.

"If Rafa Benitez would have stayed at Liverpool I believe everything would be different for me.

"There were 15 other clubs which followed me but I chose Liverpool and made a mistake."
