Mixed emotions for Jose Enrique

Jose Enrique signs for Liverpool FC

Jose Enrique was pleased to make his Liverpool debut only 24 hours after completing his signing but was disappointed his start could not have been a winning one.

An injury to Fabio Aurelio meant the player was thrown straight in to the first team, after only a brief pre-match warm up on the Friday afternoon.

“I am very happy because I only arrived the day before and I played my first game.

“I was surprised. I only found out a few hours before kick-off. I knew Fabio had not trained but it was only this morning they told me.

“I am very happy to debut but I am not really happy with the result. I think in the next few games, if I continue to play, it will be easy to understand players of this quality.

“It was just about defending first, because that is my job. I have plenty more days to train with the team and understand.”

The reds travel to the Emirates Stadium next weekend, not a happy hunting ground for Liverpool in recent years, although Enrique believes a week training with his new teammates will help him.

“We need more fitness but that is normal, as it is only the first game. I am okay. I am not 100% because I have not trained with the team and I need to get to know everyone. That is normal.”
