On hearing of the sad news about Jose Enrique this morning Newcastle fans have taken to Twitter to give the Spanish left-back some encouragement for his battle that lies ahead and will give him a real lift.
Jose has been operated on for a brain tumor which was removed in a 9-hour operation in Spain last week.
Word of encouragement have also been flooding in from Liverpool fans for a player who was always popular.
Jose helped us to come straight back up from the Championship back in 2010 after we were relegated from the Premier League the year before.
He left the club when he lost faith in Mike Ashley and signed on at Liverpool for about £7M in 2011.
Our thoughts, prayers and very best wishes go out to Jose and his family and we’re sure he will fight this disease with everything he’s got.
Best wishes Jose!
Jose Enrique – while at Newcastle

Get well soon Jose Enrique, promoted with us in 2010, one of my favourite players growing up through high school #NUFC

Hopefully Jose Enrique fully recovers. One of the best left backs I’ve seen at #nufc
