'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Dane Chat: Lovenkrands

Speaking to the Northern Echo, Peter Lovenkrands has again told of his happiness on Tyneside so far as the run in starts to hot up. The Dane has outlined what he hopes to be a prosperous end to the season and hopefully a new contract, saying:

"I love playing as a striker and feel confident that I can get goals. I know that we have great strikers like Oba and Michael Owen so when I get a chance to play up front I feel a bit nervous to prove that I`m good enough.

But I thought I did well against West Brom and scored my goal that helped get us the three points so I`ve repaid the coach`s faith in me a bit. I played my last half season at Rangers as a striker and scored 18 goals and I got one against West Brom playing through the middle so hopefully that convinces people that I can play in that position. I know that when all of our strikers are fit it`s going to be a real battle to play up front.

I didn`t realise that they were singing my name. At half time Alan Smith said to me 'have you heard the supporters?` and I was like 'was that about me?` It was quite funny when he told me what they were singing because I`ve only been here five minutes. It`s a massive compliment for a player like Nicky Butt to say that because as far as I`m concerned he`s a superstar and a really good player so for him to say something like that is very pleasing and it`s a huge boost for my confidence.

I`d heard about the fans before I came here but they`ve been amazing for me and it`s nice to get their support and feel welcome. I had a good relationship with the fans at Rangers and the Newcastle fans are unbelievable.

It`s been amazing I`m just loving being here so much. Newcastle just feels like the perfect club for me and I couldn`t be happier really. When I look around our team and the quality that we have I find it amazing that we have been struggling in the league.

I`ve always been known for my sprinting and I reckon I can still give the young lads at the club a run for their money on the training pitch. I still feel that I`ve got pace in me that can cause defenders a problem I just hope I can hang onto that for a couple more years before I get too old and my legs go."
