Jose Enrique had a very good game for Newcastle on Saturday afternoon, as he assisted the Newcastle comeback in the second half, with some surging runs forward down the left wing.
Jose Enrique – great game on Saturday
It was the first game that Jose managed to see through, since his comeback from a hamstring problem, and he looked as good as ever, another signing at Newcastle that’s looking to be a good long term one.
Jose talked to Newcastle United TV this morning about the tough game at Bristol on Saturday:
“It was a funny sort of game in that we never felt we were going to lose, even though with an hour gone it didn’t look too good for us.”
“We thought we did okay in the first half but then we found ourselves back in the dressing room two goals down.”
“But we have a great belief in ourselves and thought we could still do something good in the second half.”
“Jonas had a very good game and I was delighted to see him get our first goal. I know it was a mistake by their defence but he still had a lot to do and finished really well.”
“That spurred us on and I think it was only five minutes later that I picked the ball up in my own half and saw an opportunity to go forward.”
“There was plenty of space and I managed to slip the ball inside their full back so Wayne could put it into the middle where Andy did fantastic again for us and brought us level.”
“After that there was only one team in it and in the end we were very disappointed not to get all three points.”
Of course Newcastle fans have never doubted the guts and spirit of our Spanish left-back, and we’re just pleased that Jose wanted to stay at the club last summer.
Enrique cost a whopping £6.2M when Sam Allardyce signed him from Villarreal in the summer of 2007, but the lad’s looking good value for money now, and wants to stay at Newcastle long term.
