Peter Lovenkrands has praised Glasgow Rangers manager Steven Gerrard, as well as coach Michael Beale, after he was unveiled as the new boss of Fremad Amager.
The Lowdown: Lovenkrands picks up new role
He has now picked up his first managerial role, taking over at Danish second-tier outfit Fremad Amager (The Scottish Sun).
The Latest: Lovenkrands praises Gers duo
Upon his appointment, Lovenkrands had nothing but praise for Gerrard and Beale. He said (via Daily Record):
“From my time at Glasgow Rangers, I gained a lot of experience from Steven Gerrard and Michael Beale, who gave me some important tools in everyday life.
“The leadership role of the B team gave me an opportunity to work on my development and the development of the players who had to fight for a place on a really strong first team under the leadership of Gerrard.”
The Verdict: Says a lot about Gerrard
Lovenkrands is now embarking on a new chapter in his career, and it was a big day for him to secure his first senior role. As such, it just goes to show the impact Gerrard has had at Ibrox that the former Denmark international chose such an occasion to praise the current Gers boss.
Will Lovenkrands succeed as a manager?
Gerrard’s reputation continues to be enhanced. Of course, the results speak for themselves – the Gers won the Premiership title this past term without losing a single game in the league (thefishy.co.uk) – but praise such as this says a lot about the influence he has behind the scenes as well.
