Liverpool flop Jovanovic regrets England move

Milan Jovanovic says he regrets moving to Liverpool last summer as he remains unsettled on Merseyside.

The 30-year old Serbian striker has failed miserably at Anfield since arriving from Belgian club Standard Liege as a free agent prior to the 2010/11 season and he admits things would have worked out better if he did not come to England.

"If I'm completly honest, I must say that I regulary think about this. If I would move to Italy or Germany I would be happier than in England - my life would be nicer," he told Sportske.

"And also for my career it would be better to play in Serie A or the Bundesliga.

"In Belgium I was living in an area where there were so many people from Serbia and my life was different, more dynamic.

"Liverpool is such a different place. I'm here alone, without anybody. I'm just a very lonely stranger.

"In my months here I haven't met anybody from my country. If I wouldn't have my wife and my kids I just couldn't speak Serbian with anybody.

"But Liverpool is of course a club which you can't refuse.

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