Liverpool link dismissed by CSKA Moscow’s Krasic

CSKA Moscow midfielder Miols Krasic will not be joining Liverpool according to his agent Dejan Joksimovic.

CSKA Moscow midfielder Miols Krasic will not be joining Liverpool according to his agent Dejan Joksimovic.

Recent reports suggested that the 25-year old Serbia international was set to sign a pre-contract with the Reds – the stories emerging after his former Vojvodina teammate Milan Jovanovic signed with Liverpool.

Joksimovic confirmed the Jovanovic deal but poured cold water on the rumours linking Krasic with a shift to Anfield.

"I was in Liverpool to sort out a transfer," Joksimovic told Russian sports newspaper Sovetski Sport.

"But not for Krasic, for Milan Jovanovic, the Standard Liege forward who has signed a three-year contract with the English side and will start playing there this summer.

"Journalists decided that if Jovanovic was moving to Rafael Benitez's team, then why not Krasic too? It's an excellent theme for an article, and sure to be well-read!

"Krasic is not signing for Liverpool, and hasn't even held talks with them. Everything is just rumour so far."
