Enrique eager to improve

Published Add your comment

Jose Enrique is refusing to get ahead of himself despite an impressive start to life at Liverpool since his summer transfer move from Newcastle United.

The Spanish full-back appears to have finally solved the Reds' conundrum on the left side of defence, producing a string of fine performances so far and helping the club winning three of its first six league games, as well as progressing through to the Carling Cup fourth round.

However, the ambitious Enrique isn't ready to rest on his laurels, and is keen to improve sufficiently enough to be named in Spain's European Championships squad next summer.

"To get the fans with you, you have to play well," Enrique said. "At the moment I think I've done well but I can do better.


"I have to improve of course. Sometimes I think about my mistakes and I want to kick myself.

"I'm like every person - I know when I've done good things and I know when I've done bad things. In football it's the same. I always think about my mistakes.

"I watch videos of other left-backs. I like Ashley Cole a lot - I think he's one of the best left-backs in the world. Others too, like Marcelo.

"I think if I keep improving I can be there (with Spain). I haven't gone yet because it's really hard to go - we won the last World Cup and the last European Championships, but I hope in the future I can be there.

"When I signed here I wanted to play Champions League football with this club and also to try and go to the national team. If I go I'll be happy but for me the national team is an extra. It's important but for me it's my club first."
