LIKE HIM OR HATE HIM: WE NEED JOSE ENRIQUE

Friends of Liverpool FC at related • 0 views
So Jose Enrique has decided to stay at LFC for the rest of the Season to see out his £65,000 a week contract as no other credible offers came in for the likable left-back.

I think, we have a genuine shortage of cover in this position with Alberto Moreno and Joe Gomez the only incumbents this Season.
