Jose Enrique Makes Surprise Debut for Liverpool

Jose Enrique, Liverpool

Spaniard Enrique's debut took place just 48 hours after sealing his move to Merseyside.

Enrique later commented, “In the first half we played some unbelievable stuff and we need to do that for 90 minutes. If we can do that then we can beat anyone,” Enrique said.

“We want to get back into the top four this season and if we could win the Premier League that would be fantastic, but we have to be realistic. A lot of teams have spent a lot of money and for me this league is the most competitive one in the world.

“Seven teams could finish in the top four but we want to be there and we will do everything we can to make that possible.”

“It was an amazing feeling for me to put the red shirt on for the first time because this is a fantastic club,” he said.

“When the manager told me I was starting I called up my family because they all wanted to watch the game.”

Enrique admitted on signing day that it was one of the happiest days of his career, and reiterated the feeling after stepping out in front of the Kop in the famous red shirt.

“It was an amazing experience to play in front of the Newcastle fans because we had 45,000 people every game and it is the same here at Anfield.

“I remember playing here for Newcastle last season and the Liverpool fans were fantastic.

“It’s an amazing feeling when you walk out onto the pitch and the crowd sing ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ before kick-off.”

Liverpool will clash with Bolton on Auguest 27th at Anfield Road. Tickets are available.
