Jose Enrique has said today that he sends videos of the Newcastle matches back to his folks in Spain, so they can still watch him play in England, now that Newcastle are not in the Premier League, whose game are beamed live around the world, of course.
Jose Enrique – now a fixture on Tyneside – and he even likes the weather (?)
Enrique told the Evening Chronicle today:
“There are more people that watch the Championship in Spain now!” “My family enjoy watching me play, I can send them matches.”
“It’s only really important to them. Nobody is really interested in it Spain, so otherwise they don’t see it on TV over there.”
Enrique says the Blackpool (who beat us!) and Plymouths of the CC Championship, are not household names either in Spain or in his own eyes, but he knows no team can be under-estimated, as the team found out to their peril last Wednesday night at Bloomfield Road.
“I think the quality is OK but I think there will only be about six or seven teams out of the whole division who can really say they have a chance of playing in the Premier League next year.”
“But saying that, I think that any team can beat any other in a one off match. That has happened already to us. The difficulty level is the same for each game.”
“If people had told us two months ago that we’d be where we are, then maybe we wouldn’t have believed them.” “As you would expect when a team is near the top the atmosphere is still good and we feel we can get back there very soon.”
“This is the best period of my two years here. It’s been great to be winning games consecutively until Blackpool and now we want to build up another hot streak.”
Jose has settled down on Tyneside, and he is now a fixture at the club.
We’re a little surprised he is still at the club, after we were relegated, but he could be on Tyneside for quite a while, as he epitomizes the passion and fight that Newcastle fans just love to see in their players.
He’s also a good player. 😀
