Montenegrin national team member Stevan Jovetic arrived in Athens, where he is expected to undergo medical examinations and sign a one-year contract with Olympiakos today.
Montenegro is heavily preparing for the matches against Lithuania and Bulgaria, but today it had to remain without its captain, the reason being the signing of a contract with a new club.
After 15 years spent in the five strongest leagues in Europe, Jo-Jo will now play in the Greek championship.
Upon landing at the airport, he was met by the Greek media, and Jovetic gave his first impressions to the local Mega TV.
“I’m really happy to be here. Olympiakos is a big club, with a great history and successes. We’ve been talking for two weeks now and everyone made an effort to bring me. I am very proud”, said Jovetic, as reported by Nikos Kotsis, a journalist on this television station.
The 33-year-old offensive player played for Partizan, Fiorentina, Inter, Manchester City, Sevilla, Monaco and Hertha in his career.
Olympiakos will compete in the Europa League this season, and their opponents in Group A will be West Ham, Freiburg and TSC.
