Peter Lovenkrands is ready to help get Newcastle United back to the top tier at the first attempt, and he says he is just champing at the bit.
Peter Lovenkrands – raring to go
The Danish International said today:
“It is up to Chris and Colin whether they want me to start – I will be happy just to be involved.”
“I know I will have my time to get in from the start.” “I will have to wait and see what happens.”
Lovenkrands will likely get at least another 30 minute run out tonight, like he did on Sunday at Cardiff, and we have to think there are a lot of goals that can come from the Dane this season, he is so classy close to goal.
And Newcastle have sent Ameobi away for a short break to get away from things, with his foot injury now expected to rule him out for up to two months, and obviously Shola is very unhappy with this.
He showed the best form of his career at Newcastle in the opening games, when he was almost unplayable – and of course he won the Coca Cola Championship Player of the Month Award for August.
Lovenkrands can also operate on either wing which is another reason this free signing was an excellent capture.
“In training I am playing as a striker.” “We have Jonas Gutierrez coming back, so he can go on the wing.”
“We have great wingers, and up front we have some injuries, so I hope I can get more time up front.”
“With the players we have, it will be great to be up there – it is a very exciting line-up on paper.”
We’d be surprised if Peter starts tonight, but with Gutierrez due back soon, and Peter shortly match fit, and a couple of new loan signings – Chris will have some selection problems soon – and that’s always good.
