Photo: Jose Enrique has dinner with Liverpool star who is leaving today

Liverpool's Jose Enrique said a public goodbye to AC Milan's Suso.

Jose Enrique posted a photo on his Twitter feed last night having dinner with friends to say goodbye to Liverpool teammate Suso.

Suso has clinched a move to AC Milan, the BBC confirmed on Saturday, with Enrique revealing the attacker departs for Italy this Monday.

The 21-year-old did not get a regular run in the Liverpool side under Brendan Rodgers, but missed more than two months of this season through injury.

His contract was set to expire at the end of the season, and the chance to join a club with a rich history like Milan tempers any disappointment he may have had at leaving Liverpool.

The real risk is really for Liverpool with the deal. While losing him may have been inevitable at this stage, had they acted to renew his contract earlier, this situation may not have arisen.

Suso is a highly talented player who has the ability to make letting him leave seem like a terrible mistake if he goes onto fulfil his potential.
