Enrique dedicates goal to son

18 November 2012 14:05

Jose Enrique has dedicated his first ever Premier League goal to his unborn son.

After 161 appearances for Newcastle and Liverpool, the 26-year-old defender finally netted for the first time in the Reds' 3-0 win over Wigan at Anfield on Saturday.

The Spaniard's strike, alongside two from more regular scorer Luis Suarez, sealed a victory that took his side up to 11th in the table after 12 games.

After a tough start for new manager Brendan Rodgers, Enrique feels a recent upturn in results is a reflection of generally good performances that have not been getting what they deserve.

"I am very happy, firstly not for my goal, but for the three points. I think we are playing well this season but we deserve more points," Enrique said.

"We have to keep playing like this because then I think the points will come.

"Of course, I am happy for my goal. I have a kid on the way and there are not many weeks left until he is born so it was for him. It is a great feeling."

The former Villarreal defender is not known for his goalscoring and admitted that his celebration reflected as much.

"To be honest, the first thing I wanted to do was put my thumb to my mouth but then I didn't know what to do because I don't really score," he said.

"But the most important thing is another three points. I am happy about my goal but it's about the team."
