Former Liverpool star John Arne Riise doesn't want Reds chief Jurgen Klopp to hand Jose Enrique a lifeline at Anfield. 

In a question and answer session on Twitter, Riise insisted that there shouldn't be a way back for the Spaniard on Merseyside.

Enrique has endured a torrid time at the club recently, failing to establish himself on the first-team scene.

However, after Joe Gomez picked up a long-term injury, it has been documented that the ex-Newcastle United man could be in line for a recall in the near future. 

The 29-year-old hasn't featured for the club so far this term, but it's far from certain as to whether he has a future under the guidance of Klopp.

One thing is for sure, Riise doesn't want him to be handed a chance...

There's potential 

In truth, it would be foolish to completely disregard Enrique at this stage. He has had his problems at the club, of course, but perhaps he deserves the opportunity to prove his credentials under the new regime. 

With Gomez out for the long term, Klopp is certainly restricted in terms of options, so there's no reason why he shouldn't at least take a look at Enrique. 

Let's be honest, the full-back isn't going to become a key player at the club, but he could yet have a role to play this term. The new Liverpool boss certainly has a decision to make.
