Liverpool careerEdit

Jovanovic was signed on a free transfer on 8 July 2010 after his contact with Standard Liège expired. Although he signed his pre-contract for Liverpool while Rafael Benitez was still manager he decided to honor it even though Benitez resigned before the summer transfer period. He was given the number 14 shirt last worn my Xabi Alonso.

He made his competitive debut against FK Rabotnički, in the Europa League, on 5 August 2010. He made his Premier league debut on the first match of the year in a 1-1 draw against Arsenal. Jovanovic found it hard to settle at Liverpool, never finding his form on the pitch, and personally not enjoying the city. Because of his poor form he was not started for the latter half of the 2010-11 season.

When the 2011 summer transfer window opened, Jovanovic was informed by Liverpool that he was free to seek a new club, with Liverpool not requiring a transfer fee. Jovanovic revealed on 9 July 2011 that he had held discussions with Anderlecht and Club Brugge regarding a move back to Belgium.

On 4 August 2011, Anderlecht confirmed that Jovanovic had signed a two year deal with them, ending his year-long stay at Anfield.
