Jose Enrique hails 'Spanish' Rodgers

Liverpool full-back Jose Enrique has named Reds boss Brendan Rodgers as the best manager he has played under, reports the Liverpool Echo.

Enrique, 26, has spent much of his career in England, since leaving La Liga for Newcastle in 2007, but this doesn't appear to have resulted in the lack of a Spanish influence, the ex-Newcastle defender claims:

“In England, he is the best manager I have had in terms of tactics and everything else. Tactically, he is very Spanish. He reminds me of when I had (Manuel) Pellegrini at Villarreal.

“He really likes Spanish players, those who give him 100% every game. He has a mentality like a Spanish manager and I really like that.

Rodgers, 39, studied coaching methods around Europe before joining the Chelsea Academy as Head Youth Coach, where he worked under Jose Mourinho.

Jose Enrique would be further comforted that Rodgers speaks fluent Spanish, and has been invited to watch the Spanish national team train by manager and friend Vicente Del Bosque, in a bid to improve the Reds' early season form.

Liverpool have recorded just one victory in the last eight matches in all competitions, although have lost just two matches in the last 11. Rodgers' next clash will be at White Hart Lane against Tottenham on Wednesday night.
