Liverpool Belgian fans thrilled with Jovanovic move

Liverpool's Belgian fans are floating over Milan Jovanovic's Bosman move from Standard Liege.

The Serbia international completed his switch this week. The 29-year-old forward was regarded as the biggest star in the Jupiler league.

Mikael Roufosse, Standard Liege fan and member of the Belgian branch of the Official Liverpool Supporters' Club, told "I'm very excited as he's a huge star in our country and a much-loved player in Liege. Hopefully he can make a big impression with Liverpool.

"He is very explosive. On his day there was no match for him in Belgium. I really hope he can make the step up as Barclays Premier League football is much more demanding and therefore it's not easy to be on top form every game. I think he's the type of player we need away from home and someone we can unleash with 20 minutes to go.

"Standard Liege and Liverpool have so much in common; a great past, the same culture within the city and, of course, great fans. Jova will have no problems adapting."
