Enrique Slams Newcastle Transfer Policy And Ambition


Newcastle left-back Jose Enrique will not be long at the Newcastle club now, after he has slammed the Newcastle transfer policy,  via his twiitter account tonight – and the news is being carried by the Daily Mirror.

Jose Enrique – criticizes transfer policy of Newcastle

Jose has been unsettled at Newcastle ever since that fateful day of January 31st, when Newcastle decided to sell arguably their best player in 22 year-old local lad Andy Carroll.

And then there was a fall-out of the Newcastle hierarchy with of all players, captain Kevin Nolan, and he elected to join second division club West Ham United last month,  rather than see out the two years left on his contract

The third surprise was when Newcastle announced they had withdrawn their contract offer to another top player, Joey Barton, and he will now see the one year left on his five year deal at Newcastle, and leave next summer, or maybe even earlier if Newcastle can sell him.

Jose has accused the club of a lack of ambition, even though Alan Pardew has said the Tyneside club had made a fantastic contract offer to the 25 year-old Spaniard.

Jose Enrique sent this out on his twitter account while still in America, following Newcastle’s surprise 1-0 defeat last night against third tier American club Orlando City.

This is what Jose said, the first three paragraphs were initially in Spanish and have been translated here:

“The club is allowing all the major players of the team to go. Seriously, do you think it is the fault of the players? Andy Carroll,  Kevin Nolan etc etc.

“This club will never again fight to be among the top 6 again with this policy.”

“I think you fans are the best and you deserve the best, not what they are doing with the club. Thanks to everyone for supporting me.”

“The club  give the money I have already. They lie all the time. But is no for money is because they don’t want spend in the club and bring quality players that’s why everybody go.”

Enrique  joined Newcastle from Spanish club Villarreal in August, 2007,  for around  £6.3M, and after these words it’s hard to see that Jose will be at Newcastle  for too much longer.

Pardew will need to keep the spirit of the Newcastle squad high,  and anybody who is disenchanted with Newcastle, for whatever reason, is hardly good for the team spirit of the squad.

    It is good to see that players are ambitious for the club.[ as well as themselves].
    He’s kinda telling us what a lot of people already suspected.

    Sorry guys, but i think it’s very to early to make a judgement. There is major change in the club, and such a problem was impossible to avoid.

    Indeed, i don’t know much about past Ashley’s lies, but well, i’m still optimistic.

    ruz mate I have no idea, I am at a loss for words, Ashley just doesn’t give a sh1t about us just the club receiving maximum income against minimum expenditure.

    Anyway, the club now didn’t have time for philosophy. There’s an imediate problem: the need of a new left back. Quickly.

    I let you think to who this guy can be.

    Bonne nuit.

    He needs to go quick. I agree, we had a fantastic club last year and were only on the up. A few additions and we would be pushing top6 , top 4.
    Carroll for $35 million is a great deal. If we sign Gremerio, Gervinho. etc…

    We basically traded Carroll for Ba, Nolan for Cabeye who are on lower wages. We picked up Mareux for free.

    We have gone backwards a bit, although maybe we havent maybe these are great player but we have replaced the know for the unkown and we didnt need to do it.

    I understand we need to balance the books and they seem to be running the club well. A great system for the future. But they lie and twists the truth to much for me.

    If they had said the Carroll money goes to uping the wages so we can keep players latter on at the beginning I would of said okay then. But the dont tell us this.

    I think slowly letting the wage bill grow is a fantastic plan, its a must. But you dont uprout a team in one transfer window.

    Yup. The Joseenriqe3 account, that’s been deactivated, posted personal photos of himself, Colo and Jonas larking around with some American Football gear, at Kansas’ stadium, it was also the one Danny Simpson verified and linked everybody to.

    It hurts because the team we had last year was fantastic, a vastly experience manager who had more schooling in the game under great managers than Pardew. What more do you want. One of the best english midfielders out there. A defensive midfielder to die for. The best young #9 striker around. One of the best left backs in the league. What a team we were building. Any player who would of came in would of thrived in the team spirit. Ben Arfa was already ours. What pride I had in that team.

    But now we restart. A inexperienced manager is signed up who had know where near the experience of Chris. Kill the first class team spirit. Lose our #9 and a great left back. For know reason. I guess ill wait and see what this team is like. I mean we where good but whos know now?

    We obviously dont need a striker tho, I mean 0 goals in two games against the MLS. bahh

    Tell me this ain’t asset stripping, tell me this is how you run a successful business by pissing off you prize assets (best players) seriously some people cant see what’s happening infront of their eyes…

    I haven’t wrote a positive post for a while because let’s face it there isn’t anything positive to write. On clutching at straws – we have some great youngsters, however we have pardew as manager and Ashley as our owner end of!!! We are screwed till we get rid of this circus in town lads

    You know that discussion, when we ask how many Toon players would get into top Premier league squads? Last Jan it was Carroll, Enrique, Tiote, Ben Arfa and Barton.

    You should always build on the good players! How many of those 5 will be here in August?

    well that isn’t really good commercial for the club that one of our best player says this.. but I think he is right if we keep doing what we are doing right now we will never be a top 6 club. we can’t sell our best players all the time and especially not when we don’t reinvest the money to new quality players. sell andy carroll for 35m is a really good deal if we spend the fcking money… we have spent 0m so far no matter what pardew says.

    What! Liverpool have spent a fortune on players and Enrique joining them will not mean they are going to qualify for the champions league next season.
    We as a club need to get rid of rhe debtn Barton who l want to fight for a new contract next season said “they are bringing in better and cheaper players”
    We as a club need to reduce our debt before we can go out and purchase, if needed that top player which could make us Championship material, personally l think we already have that man, his name is Hatem Ben Afra.
    Enrique has become disillusioned because Carol was sold but just look at the quality of players brought in to relace him, Ba, Cabaye, Abeid, Marvaux and soon l think Erdinc.
    These players have been brought in to complement Enriques skills and develop a continental style of football not hit and hope hoof the ball up the park we have had to watch for years.
    Nolan good player that he is is not suited to this type of football he is to slow and not mobile enough or interchangeable across the front line.
    Ashley and Pardew want a young ambitious team brimming with skill and adaptability and Enrique has totally missed the point, it is in place to complement your skills so you can show your fellow Spaniards just how good you are and how indispensible you are to your national squad.
    As for Barton he is 28 l think but unlike Nolan he has the ability to play in this system and l can remember him slagging Englad off for being 30 years behind the top national teams in their approach to the game, so Barton my advice to you would be knuckle down read the writing on the wall and be positive, you have the opportunity to help this club become great, playing the game correctly with highly skilled players like yourself. You might even get a rolling contract if you not greedy.
    Good luck for next season lads.

    I spoke to Kieth Harris on 3 occasions..

    He was handling the sale of the club.. He Sold Chelsea And Man Utd remember ?

    Remember when Ashley put Newcastle up for sale and that long letter from him on the official website…

    Well Keith told me that Ashley had lost all heart in the club back then Because of the abuse he received from the supporter’s

    I pressed Keith on this and said ..well with time and some support from the thinking supporters do you think Ashley will have a change of heart ?

    Keith’s answer was “no chance ..no chance whatsoever “He has lost his heart for Newcastle and there will be no going back

    ” He’s got no heart in Newcastle now”

    That was said directly to me by Keith Harris .

    Seems to me that this is what’s wrong at the club now .

    And if anyone want’s to quote me to Keith.. Feel free as that’s exactly what was said.
