Stevan Jovetic was born on the 2nd of November 1989 in Titograd, SFR Yugoslavia and is a Montenegrin international footballer who plays for Serie A club Fiorentina.

On 8 April 2006, he made his senior debut for Partizan under head coach Jürgen Röber during a league match against Voždovac.

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. During October 2007, he was linked to several high profile clubs such as Manchester United and Real Madrid. Jovetic became Partizan’s club-captain in January 2008, after former captain Antonio Rukavina was sold to German Bundesliga side Borussia Dortmund.

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

On 26 August 2009, Jovetic scored against Sporting Lisbon in a 1-1 draw at Stadio Artemio Franchi, gifting Fiorentina their entrance into the Champions League group stages. On 29 September 2009, he scored both goals in a 2-0 victory over Liverpool in the Champions League group stage.

Jovetic was a founding member of the Montenegro national team who played their first game against Hungary in March 2007. Jovetic is also a regular for the Montenegro U-21 team and was appointed as stand-in captain for Mirko Vucinic at just 17 years old.

Fiorentina supporters gave Jovetic the nickname “Jo-Jo” and because of his hairstyle, Jovetic is frequently compared by press and Fiorentina supporters to the famous Queen guitarist Brian May.
