Jose Enrique decides to stay at Liverpool - Twitter reacts

Published 12 Comments

Jose Enrique has decided to stay at Liverpool after failing to reach an agreement with Newcastle United.

This has been reported by the Liverpool Echo, who claim that the deal has fallen through and the 30-year-old won't be returning to his former club. 

Enrique, of course, has endured a torrid time on Merseyside - he hasn't featured in the Premier League yet this season - but it appears that he's set to see out the final six months of his current contract.

Unsurprisingly, the same report from the Liverpool Echo claims that Newcastle weren't prepared to match the player's current £65,000-a-week salary. 

Liverpool, then, may well have to keep Enrique in the squad for the remainder of the campaign. Understandably, following the latest twist in the saga, fans have taken to social media.

Liverpool's struggling defender should probably look away...

Wrong decision? 

With Enrique earning such a large sum to sit on the sidelines, it's easy to understand why he has taken the easy way out.


But he isn't getting any younger; surely a return to Newcastle would have handed him the perfect opportunity to get his career back on track. Unfortunately, though, it just appears that he's happy picking up his paychecks. 

What do you make of Enrique's decision to stay at Liverpool? Have your say below!
