Jose Enrique happy with new role
Liverpool’s Jose Enrique has declared he is enjoying life on Merseyside and never feared that his place in the side was in jeopardy.
It seemed the Spaniard had fallen down the pecking order, due to a slump in form, but is now enjoying an extended run in the team.
“Football is for moments and now I am playing well so I hope I can continue like this and help the team as much as possible,” Jose Enrique is reported to have said by Sporting Life.
“Last year, up to December, I played really well and then I don’t know why I dropped my form.
“Now I’ve started to do it again and it is more important to think in the present and live from now and I will try to do my best now.
“To be honest I’ve never been worried because I’ve always believed in myself.
“But I am really happy here. It is the biggest club I’ve played for, the fans are amazing and I really like the city so of course I want to play here for a long time.”
Enrique found himself out of the team initially at the beginning of Brendan Rodgers reign, but has found a new position on the left hand side of midfield playing off Luis Suarez and admits he is happy to play anyway.
“I like to play there but to be honest my position is left-back, it is where I am more comfortable and is where I have been all my life in the Premier League,” he added.
“Of course, you enjoy it when you attack and I don’t have to defend that much and playing there with Luis is really easy as his movement is everything and he is a really clever player.
“But it depends on where the manager wants me to play – I don’t care where.”
