Liverpool midfielder Milan Jovanovic regrets moving to Anfield and cannot wait to leave Merseyside.

The 30-year-old joined the Reds last summer was signed on a free from Belgian side Standard Liege by former manager Rafael Benitez.

The Serbian international has struggled to make an impact under Roy Hodgson and then Kenny Dalglish and has been linked with a move away.

Jovanovic is unhappy with his situation and wants to move to back to Europe but admits life would have been different if Benitez stayed in charge.

Asked if he ever regretted his move to England, Jovanovic told Sportske.”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.

“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.”

“My only regret is, that the coach, who brought me at Anfield, left the club even before my arrival,” he said.

“If Rafa Benitez would have stayed in 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.”
