Bad news today as Newcastle striker Peter Lovenkrands’ could be out for the season after picking up a thigh injury in training this week.
Peter Lovenkrands – could be out for the season
With Peter’s three year contract running out at the end of June, it could be that his appearance against Sunderland will be the last time he is seen in a Newcastle strip, as we expect him to become a free agent this summer.
Newcastle manager Alan Pardew has confirmed the Danish International may not play again this season with what looks like a bad thigh injury:
“We have got a bad injury this week – Peter Lovenkrands has really hurt his thigh.” “We are not sure yet, but he’s definitely torn it and he might have ruptured it.”
“So we think that’s him for the season, actually, which is a very big blow for him with his contract up and everything.”
Lovenkrands joined the club as a free agent under former manager Joe Kinnear in January of 2009, and has played 84 times for the Magpies with 29 goals, and this season he scored 3 goals in his 11 appearances for the club.
This is not good news for either Newcastle or Peter.
