Enrique hails ‘fantastic’ Liverpool teammate Gerrard

Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique has hailed Steven Gerrard, despite admitting the 33-year-old has lost something physically, Sky Sports as reported.

The England captain played a part in all of Liverpool’s four goals during the comfortable win over Fulham at Anfield on Saturday, and Enrique believes the Reds skipper still has the vision and passing range that he did in his younger years.

” Enrique said.

When you get older you lose something physically; when he was playing with (Fernando) Torres for example he was playing behind the striker and now he is deeper on the ball.

He is playing with Lucas (Leiva) in a role he did not play when he was younger but the quality of the passes, crosses and free-kicks he is still doing the same thing. His quality is amazing,” Enrique said.

Brendan Rodgers’ side are just two points off league-leaders Arsenal with 23 points and have lost just twice this season. Southampton, who are just a point off the Reds in the Premier League table, are the only team to beat Liverpool at Anfield this season.
