Peter Lovenkrands' emphatic response on Twitter when asked about potential Newcastle return

Lovenkrands

The former Newcastle forward would relish a St James' Park return, perhaps in a coaching capacity.

Peter Lovenkrands was in good spirits on Twitter on Saturday afternoon. And why wouldn't he be? Former club Newcastle United earned a rare win and duly sent themselves out of the relegation zone as a result.

Aleksandar Mitrovic netted the winner for Newcastle against West Brom, as a poor Baggies side provided no answers at St James' Park.

In the aftermath of the game - and his celebrations on Twitter - Lovenkrands was asked whether he would return to Tyneside if offered the chance.

And the former forward responded emphatically, suggesting he would come back to the Magpies in a 'heart beat.'

The 36-year-old also hinted that he would enjoy being a forward coach at Newcastle (although the question was posited to him as a joke: 'goalscoring coach'...

Next up for Steve McClaren's men is a tough trip to Stamford Bridge to face Chelsea. While Newcastle fans will celebrate right now, then, they'll know more will be needed against better opposition.
