Jose Enrique played his first game on Saturday for a while and played very well against Blackburn and certainly fitted well into the Kevin Keegan style of attacking play on show against Rovers.
Jose Enrique – played extremely well on Saturday – hope he stays
However, reports over the weekend suggest that Jose has failed to settle on Tyne-side and would like to return to Spain in the summer.
Thatâ€™s a pity because we think Jose has all the making of a very good player at Newcastle. His time at Newcastle has not been helped by a number of niggling injures and the fact that both Sam Allardyce and Kevin Keegan seemed to have preferred Charles Nâ€™Zogbia at left back.
However, after Joseâ€™s performance on Saturday he must be almost a certainty to start at Liverpool next Saturday.
Even if Jose stays it looks like Newcastle will bring in one of Nicky Shorey, Wayne Bridge, John Arne Riise or Steve Finnan, all of whom look to be available in the summer. But on the other hand Jose will probably get a string of games before the end of the season to prove to Kevin he can do the job at left back.
And we hope Jose gives it at least another season. He’s a good player and could fit very well into Kevin’s attacking form of wing play.
What do you think?
