Jose Enrique has tweeted his disillusionment with the transfer policy employed by Newcastle’s hierarchy due to the sale of top players, whilst also calling into question their honesty, according to Football365.
Witnessing the departure of star striker Andy Carroll and captain Kevin Nolan, combined with Newcastle’s failure to offer Enrique an improved contract, which in May manager Alan Pardew claimed would be done, has clearly rankled with the Spanish full-back as he launched into the following Twitter tirade against his current employers. “The club is allowing all the major players of the team to go. Seriously do you think that it is the fault of the players? Andy Carroll, Kevin Nolan etc etc,” Enrique posted in Spanish on his twitter account before going on to add: “This club will never again fight to be in the top 6 with this policy.”

Of his own contract situation Enrique appeared to claim the club had not offered him a financially improved deal contrary to their indication they would, with the Spaniard tweeting: “They give the same money as I have already. They lie all the time.” In the same post Enrique again aired his discontent with Newcastle’s transfer policy, “They (Newcastle Board) don’t want to spend in the club and bring quality players in that’s why everybody goes.”
It is as yet unclear if and indeed how Newcastle owner Mike Ashley and manager Pardew will respond to Enrique’s outburst but given how unsettled the Spaniard appears to be, his days as a Newcastle player may be numbered, with the Daily Mail reporting Liverpool could potentially offer him a route out of St. James‘ Park.
Newcastle have already tried to prepare for Enrique’s potential departure in their recent failed pursuit of Swansea’s Neil Taylor and Pardew has given further indication, to the Independent, that signing a new left-back is something which remains high on his agenda. “We are trying to do some business because we need to cover ourselves in the left-back area between now and the closure of the transfer window, regardless of what happens with Enrique.”
As Enrique’s future remains uncertain, Newcastle will look to bounce back from their 1-0 weekend defeat to Orlando, when they line-up against Columbus Crew tonight, in the final game of their US tour.
