Partizan

On 8 April 2006, at the age of 16,[1] he made his senior debut for Partizan under head coach Jürgen Röber during a league match against Voždovac.[2]

He scored three goals during a UEFA Cup qualifying game against Zrinjski on 2 August 2007, in a 5–0 victory for Partizan, making it his first career hat-trick at only 17 years old.[3] During October 2007, he was linked to several high profile clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid.[4][5] He became Partizan's club captain at age 18 in January 2008, after former captain Antonio Rukavina was sold to German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund. This made him Partizan's youngest captain ever, surpassing club legend Albert Nađ who became captain at age 19.[6]

Fiorentina

On 10 May 2008, Serie A club Fiorentina signed him for a reported fee of £7.3 million (€8 million).[7] He scored his first goal for La Viola (The Purples) in the league match against Atalanta from the penalty spot on 5 April 2009.[8]

He started the 2009–10 season with a goal against Sporting Lisbon in a 1–1 draw at Stadio Artemio Franchi, which gifted Fiorentina their entrance into the Champions League group stages.[9] Other decisive goals included goals against Palermo, Sampdoria and Livorno. On 29 September 2009, he scored both goals in a 2–0 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League group stage.[10] . On 9th March 2010, Jovetic scored two goals in Fiorentina's 3-2 win over Bayern Munich, however they lost the tie on away goals.

International career

Jovetić was a founding member of the Montenegro national team who played their first game against Hungary in March 2007,[11] and is also a regular for the Montenegro U-21 team.[12]

Personal life

Fiorentina supporters gave Jovetić the nickname "Jo-Jo".[13] Because of his hairstyle, Jovetić is frequently compared by press and Fiorentina supporters to the famous Queen guitarist Brian May.[14] His idol is Roma forward and fellow Montenegrin international Mirko Vučinić, from whom he took the Montenegro U21 captain's armband at the age of 17.[1]
