Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has insisted that he is fully fit and has no new injuries.
The 28-year-old left-back was left out of the Reds’ matchday squad for Sunday’s Premier League clash against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
Before the match, Enrique posted the following photo on social networking site Twitter, a clear indication that he was supporting his teammates despite not being at Old Trafford.
Ready to watch the game. Come on boys!!! Good luck pic.twitter.com/HjSkNpTSvo— José enrique (@Jesanchez3) December 14, 2014
That post sparked speculation that Enrique had picked up an injury, but the Spaniard later clarified his situation with the following message.
I'm completely fine for the ones that are asking, just not in the squad today— José enrique (@Jesanchez3) December 14, 2014
It seems that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers did not deem Enrique suitable enough for the match against United.
Would Enrique's presence have helped Liverpool avoid a 3-0 hammering? Maybe, maybe not.
