Peter Lovenkrands’ contract runs out at the end of June, and we don’t he will be retained by Newcastle.
Peter Lovenkrands – Newcastle’s 32 year-old Danish striker
Peter was singed as a free agent in January of 2009 by then manager Joe Kinnear, and the was the resigned in last August of that year on a three year deal when Newcastle had been relegated to the Championship.
And Peter did great in that promotion season by hitting 16 goals in 32 appearances and his goal-scoring record at Newcastle is good with 29 goals in 84 appearances for the Tyneside club, and he made a short cameo performance on Sunday.
Peter is still a good player and a natural goal-scorer but at 32 his best days are behind him but he would be a great buy for a Championship club in the summer – for nothing.
This is what Peter said today on things this season:
“It’s been a bit tough for me personally this season.” “I started well and scored three goals in four games, but since then I haven’t had a lot of time on the field.”
“The new boys Demba Ba and Papiss Cisse have been going well, and I’ve just got to keep working well and hopefully I’ll get another chance.” “I’m not the type of player to let my head drop or complain.”
“No matter how things go I’ll still work hard in training and put a shift whenever I’m called on.” “It’s all about proving myself and waiting for my opportunity, and that’s what I’m trying to do.”
“I would love to get another goal so I can my 100th one.” “I’m on 99 so I’m just one away, but if I’m to have any chance then I need to be on the pitch to have a chance to score it.”
“Since I got those goals earlier in the season I have been stuck on 99, so it’s been a bit frustrating.” “All I can do is hope a chance comes my way and that I’m able to take it.”
“It would be brilliant to get another goal and reach 100, and hopefully I can do that before the end of the season.”
Peter has 3 goals in just 11 appearances this season, and this lad can help Newcastle in the run-in because we think the Danish International still has some goals in him.
Both Shola Ameobi and Lovenkrands will need to come through for Newcastle in the last 11 games of the season, if Newcastle are to keep their 6th place in the league table.
And we hope that Newcastle can keep above Liverpool in the league, and it’s going to be a terrific home game against the Reds on Sunday 1st April, which is three weeks on Sunday.
A win there would be a terrific result for the Magpies.
