Former Liverpool ace takes aim at rivals with Instagram post

The former left-back has offered a polite reminder to the club’s rivals that Liverpool are dominant when it comes to Europe.

Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has taken a swipe at the club’s rivals on Instagram over the number of European titles won.

With the prospect of the 2019/20 campaign being null and void after the current global health pandemic, it’s not completely impossible that Liverpool won’t get their hands on the title.

That would be a serious blow for Jurgen Klopp’s team who currently occupy top spot with 25 more points than Manchester City in second.

Enough is enough in the eyes of Enrique, however. The constant ripping of Liverpool remaining without a Premier League crown has clearly tipped him over the edge.

He’s offered a timely reminder to supporters of other clubs just how dominant the red half of Merseyside has been in Europe.

Liverpool have won two more Champions League titles than their rivals put together.

Manchester City, Everton, Arsenal and Tottenham have never lifted the crown. Manchester United have lifted the trophy three times, with Chelsea winning their solitary title in 2012.

 

Enrique played for Liverpool for four years before moving to Newcastle United in 2011.

The left-back played 99 times for the Reds and proved a popular figure with the club’s supporters before his departure.

He clearly still follows the fortunes of his former club and isn’t happy with United fans in particular ribbing Liverpool over the prospects of them not being crowned champions.

Formidable

Liverpool will still hope to claim their first title for nearly 30 years but nothing is certain just yet.

Klopp’s team have been magnificent during the current campaign capping off a remarkable 18 months.

Last season they claimed their sixth Champions League trophy, beating Tottenham in the final and also finished second in the league with 97 points.

More than most, Liverpool will hope football can return as soon as possible.
