Liverpool signing will be ‘handful’ – ex-teammate

Newcastle forward Peter Lovenkrands believes Andy Carroll will be a big hurdle for the side on Saturday, as the Toon travel to Anfield and face their old teammate for the first time.

“Andy will be a real handful to go up against if he plays – we knew that when he was in our team,” Lovenkrands told the Chronicle.

“He was a fantastic asset for us – he’s so strong and one of the best in Europe.


“He’s shown that again at Liverpool and with England.

“He’s a great player, and I really wish him the best, but I just hope he doesn’t score against us!”

Carroll moved to Liverpool in January at almost literally the last minute of the transfer window for a record fee of £35 million. While some have commented on possible animosity between Carroll and his Newcastle teammates when Liverpool play the northern club on Sunday, Lovenkrands insists there is no bad blood between the old teammates.

“It’ll be good to see him again,” Lovenkrands said.

“But it’s up to us to stop him.”

“It’s going to be like the Man U game – nobody’s going to expect us to get a result at Liverpool.

“Hopefully, we can go there and surprise a few people by getting a point or three.”
