Jose Enrique has looked a much better player of late, and had another more than decent game on Sunday, when he showed fans he is quicker than we thought, and he did a good job of marking the dangerous Aaron Lennon.
Jose Enrique – playing well again for Newcastle
The lad is getting better all the time, just as he performed last season when he got an expended run in the side.
Joe Kinnear seems to be very pleased with the youngster, who has showed he is more than willing to fight for his place in Newcastle’s side.
Joe Kinnear talked about Enrique with the Evening Chronicle today:
“The point is that Jose’s working hard on his game.”“We’ve got to get more from him week in, week out.”
“At times, he had the pace to keep up with Lennon, and he’s never an easy player to play against.”
“Lennon’s very direct, and it was mainly him who was whipping the crosses in, but Jose did very well against him.”
We like Jose a lot, mainly because he’s a fighter and gives 100% in every game for Newcastle. Since he seemed so fast on Sunday and crosses the ball extremely well, we wonder what he’d be like playing on the left wing, or as a left wing back?
Just a thought, but we look to Jose keeping up his good form on Friday at the JJB Stadium against Wigan, which is yet another crucial game.
No doubt in January Joe will bring in another left back, to challenge Jose for that position, as a general move to increase the quality of the squad and increase the competition for places.
Sounds good to us.
