Liverpool Ace Seeks Inspiration From ‘World Class’ Ashley Cole

By on September 29, 2011

New boy Jose Enrique has revealed he has been watching video’s of Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole in order to improve his game.

The Spaniard, who described Cole as ”one of the best in the world,” has spent time watching videos of left-backs in order to improve his game for Liverpool and increase his chances of breaking into the Spanish national set-up.

”To get the fans with you, you have to play well,’ Enrique told

”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.

The video’s, although not my choice of viewing, have clearly helped the left-back this season, as he, for my money has had one of the best starts to the season. But the 25-year-old ultimately hopes it will boost his international career, but insists the cub comes first.

”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.’

    I’m surprised that this bloke wasn’t better briefed. Surely a Liverpool player should only refer to one of those great Liverpool players in the past, such as the legendary left-back … well I’m sure that there was one.
