Liverpool Left Back Jose Enrique: ‘I Can Do Better’


Left back Jose Enrique has gotten off a to fantastic start on Merseyside, with the Spaniard making an early claim to be Liverpool's best summer signing following a strong start to the season.

While one would be hard-pressed to find a Liverpool supporter unhappy with the former Newcastle player's form, Enrique may be his own harshest critic, saying he needs to improve upon his early performances.

"To get the fans with you, you have to play well," Enrique said to

"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."

With Joan Capdevila currently being frozen out at Portuguese side Benfica, Enrique could finally receive a call-up to the Spanish national team, something not lost on the Valencia native.

"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," Enrique said.

"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."

Enrique's arrival has brought solidity to Liverpool's left back position, a perpetually tumultuous position in recent years, and his chipped through ball to Luis Suarez against Wolves demonstrated Enrique's capabilities as a two-way player.
