Spanish Ace Praises Liverpool Dressing Room
Liverpool fullback Jose Enrique admits the atmosphere at the club is top class and he’s enjoying the rigorous training regime.
The Spanish defender wasn’t expected to be welcome so easily at Liverpool following his move from Newcastle in the summer, but the left back has been pleasantly surprised with the relaxed atmosphere at the club. He told liverpoolfc.tv:
“When I was at Newcastle I said all the time it was a nice squad, but when I came here I thought because it was a big team it would be more difficult in the dressing room.
“But no. It’s a really, really good dressing room and everyone is together.
“When I started it’s difficult to be confident, it’s a big team, a different dressing room, but now I can joke all the time. The best thing I can do in my life is play football. I love to play football and you have to enjoy it. I try to enjoy it all the time, I am funny with Luis and Maxi, making jokes and everything.”
Enrique admits the training is far more intense at Anfield and even needs a kip after every session.
“I like the training more,” he told liverpoolfc.tv. “When I was at Newcastle the training was easier I think. Here it’s a little harder and I like that because when I was in Spain it was really hard too.
“Everyone here tries to give everything. Sometimes it’s hard when some players don’t play, but here they try to give 100 per cent in training. Of course this is a big team and you can’t play every game. You have two or three players for each position so you have to train really hard.
“Always I make siesta (afterwards) every day!”
Enrique joined Liverpool in the summer for a fee thought to be around £6million.
