Liverpool Star Raves About Club’s New Spanish Duo

Liverpool star Jose Enrique has raved about the club’s new Spanish duo, saying that both Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno have both settled in perfectly after their summer transfers, as reported by the Daily Star.

Moreno was involved in one of the more long running transfer sagas of the summer, with Liverpool and Sevilla negotiating considerably over his transfer fee.

Eventually, a deal to bring him to Anfield for £12 million was agreed between the two clubs, and he made the move just after the start of the season.

Manquillo was something of an unknown when Liverpool were first linked with a move for him.

The Reds eventually put together a deal with Atletico Madrid, who won La Liga last season, signing him on loan for a two year spell.

Both have been impressive since their arrivals on Merseyside, and they have impressed their compatriot Enrique, who has finally recovered from a series of injuries.

Enrique said: “They have settled in perfectly.

“I’m helping them along with that. More or less we are meeting nearly every day outside the training ground with Suso as well.

“Manquillo for me has done really, really well.

“It’s difficult for a young guy who didn’t play too much in the First Division in Spain to come to a completely different league.

“He’s doing really well. He’s doing his job. Defensively he’s really strong and going forward he can cross really well.

“As a person, he’s fantastic – he’s really, really funny. I get on really well with him.”
