Newcastle midfielder Peter Lovenkrands has revealed Florent Malouda called him to check on his condition after he was rushed to hospital last Saturday.

The 29-year-old Dane was stretchered off during his side's 2-0 Barclays Premier League defeat by Chelsea at St James' Park after going into a challenge with the Frenchman.

He told the club's official website: "Florent Malouda rang me and texted me earlier this week, which I thought showed what a great professional he is to get my number and make that call. But it had nothing to do with him and I told him that - it was not his fault."

He added: "I actually had an infection which had affected me earlier in the game - I just didn't feel right.

"I couldn't breathe properly, I couldn't run properly and I was feeling really bad. I thought I would improve as the game went on but the hit affected me really badly."

Lovenkrands is hoping to make a swift recovery so he can play a part in the club's ongoing fight against relegation.

He said: "I'm feeling a lot better. My body is a lot better and my breathing is okay again. But I am still feeling battered and bruised and I don't want to put myself back in things until I feel right.

"I want to get back as soon as possible, but an injury like this puts your life in perspective a little bit.

"Of course, I want to be part of the run-in. I want to be in all the games from now until the end of the season. I want to come back and be 100% and do myself justice when I come back."
