Enrique proud to be a Red

Published Add your comment

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has spoken of the thrill of playing in front of the Kop for the first time as a Reds player, against Sunderland last week.

Enrique made his Anfield debut in a Liverpool shirt just 24 hours after completing his move from Newcastle United for a reported £6 million.

The Spaniard produced impressive showings in his opening game, and against Arsenal last Saturday and the full-back says he couldn't help but be affected by the history of Anfield.

"If you are a football person, you can't help being affected by Anfield," he said.

"When you experience 'You'll Never Walk Alone' for the first time as a Liverpool player, you stand there and feel proud - it makes you feel stronger."

"The atmosphere here is very different to Spain because all of the stadiums here are full, always.


"When Spanish people come to Anfield for the first time, they are amazed because of the Kop, because of the singing."

After starting his career at The Reds in decent fashion, Enrique is looking forward to winning the first trophy of his career, following on from previous mementos he's collected from other clubs

"Everywhere I have been in my life, I have taken something. From Celta Vigo I met my girlfriend. We are still together," he added.

"Then from Newcastle, I developed a new skill by learning English. From here, from Liverpool, I hope to take away trophies."
