Anfield bound front man decides to find escape route.
Milan Jovanovic has revealed he could pull out of his move to Liverpool.
The Serbia striker, whose contract at Standard Liege came to an end this summer, signed a pre-contract agreement with Liverpool in February, but speculation has been rife that former Liverpool boss Rafael Benitez, now at Inter Milan, would attempt to ambush the deal. And Jovanovic has hinted he could decide to follow Benitez to the San Siro.
“There is an agreement signed with Liverpool, but if either party wants to end it, it’s not impossible,” said the 29-year-old in quotes reported on Tuttomercatoweb.com. (PA)
OK so I am not sure where we stand on the legal front in relation to a pre-contract deal but lets get things into perspective. Milan Jovanovic is a decent player at best. Yes he scored against Germany from one yard but it is far more likely this is an attempt by his agent to get a better contract at Anfield and if indeed this is the case I would urge whomever takes the managerial reins at Liverpool just tells him to sod off.
This is a 29 year old Standard Liege player and not a top notch world class performer. We need better players than this Serbian international anyway so if he wants to muddy terms and try to play the club against another in order to sweeten his deal then we should just leave him to it.
Rafa Benitez may well have been a fan of the big bulky forward but can you really imagine Inter Milan, reigning Champions League, Serie A and Coppa Italia holders, would have any need for his services? I think not.
