Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has taken to social networking site Twitter to give his reaction to Barcelona’s defeat to Athletic Bilbao on Friday evening.

Luis Enrique’s side suffered a 4-0 loss to their La Liga rivals in the first leg of the Spanish Super Cup at San Mames.

Mikel San Jose put hosts Bilbao in the lead in the 13th minute with a spectacular strike from the centre circle after an error from Barcelona keeper Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.

Aduriz scored a hat-trick in the second half, as the Basque outfit registered a shock victory over the Spanish and European champions.

Liverpool left-back Enrique was following the game, and he was impressed with Bilbao’s win against Barcelona.


This is the beautiful thing about football. Well done athletic Bilbao.

Barcelona were the best team in the world during the 2014-15 campaign, winning the treble in Enrique’s first season in charge of the Blaugrana.

The way Bilbao dismantled the Catalan giants is nothing less than a shock, and it leaves Barca a lot to do in the second leg at Camp Nou next week.
