Jose has excellent strength and it’s very rare you see him lose a one on one. He’s also brilliant at going foward and in a nut shell we look a much much better team with him in it.
Enrique arrived from Villarreal for £6.3 million in August 2007. Jose penned a 5 year deal with the club after agreeing to sign for then manager Sam Alladyce. Jose struggled when he first arrived, a young obscure kid with a hefty price tag. It took him a while to cement a place in the team with Charles Insomnia- ahem N’zogbia preferred at the left back position for a period.
The Spaniard has become one of Newcastle’s shining lights and with his contract due to run out in August 2012 it’s important that the club make it a priority to tie Jose down to a new long term deal. The sooner we could get an offer on the table the better.
Jose has made his affections for the club known on several occasions and I don’t think he’d hesitate to sign on the dotted line if offered a new deal at Newcastle.
Newspaper reports have linked the player with Manchester United and Spurs in past weeks and although I deem that as newspaper gutter talk you have to wonder how long it will be before bigger clubs take a long look at Enrique. The boy oozes with class and IMO could easily cut it at a big club.
For me Jose continues to improve and look better all the time and is at an age where he can continue to develop. It’s surely only a matter of time before he’s playing for the full Spainish team, he deserves it too.
Alan Pardew has voiced the importance of keeping all his best stars at the club and Jose certainly falls into that catagory. With the excellent news that fellow top performer Joey Barton is locked in positive contract talks with Newcastle currently, wouldn’t it be great to get Jose to commit too? Lets hope the club are working on a new deal for our little left back.
