A few days ago, Jovanovic - who was effectively Rafa Benitez's final signing - made it clear that he didn't enjoy his time in England:
"I shed lots of tears in England. I felt unhappy every day over there.
"London is a nice place to live but everywhere else is depressing. I have advised Suarez not to move to Liverpool.
"They'll throw a lot of money at him but he should opt for Italy"
The Serb's comments enraged proud scouser Aldridge, who tore into Jovanovic in his column for the Liverpool Echo, accusing him of 'disrespecting' the club and the city:
"I couldn't believe it when I read that Milan Jovanovic has been slaughtering Liverpool. Jovanovic said he spent most of his time crying when he was at Liverpool and felt unhappy every day in the city.
"Well, I shed a tear every time I saw Jovanovic walk out on that pitch. He shouldn’t have been anywhere near our football club because he wasn’t good enough"
To be fair to Jovanovic, it sounds like he was just making a general (benign) comment on English culture/weather/quality of life rather than specifically dissing Liverpool FC.
Jovanovic scored two goals in 18 games for LFC, but never managed to find the net in the Premier League. This suggests Aldo is right that he wasn't good enough, but he was in and out of the team so much that it's hard to make say one way or the other.
To be brutally honest, if I had the choice of swapping Andy Carroll or Stewart Downing for Jovanovic right now, I would take it.
