The 29-year-old feels his limited first-team chances may force him to leave the club, although believes he will struggle to find a better team to join
Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has hinted he may have to leave Anfield after being “alienated” by manager Brendan Rodgers .
The Spanish left-back joined from Newcastle United in 2011 but has managed just 76 league appearances due to a succession of injuries, leading them to sign fellow fellow Spaniard Alberto Moreno last year.
17-year-old Joe Gomez – a summer arrival from Charlton Athletic – was preferred against Stoke on Sunday and while Enrique is determined to prove his worth to Rodgers, he concedes he may have to leave.
He told Marca : “I am in a difficult position. Myself, [Mario] Balotelli and [Fabio] Borini have been alienated.
“I have a year left on my contract and I want to stay and fight as I always have but if a good opportunity came in with a longer contract and better chances to play I would study it.
“I will not give up. Football changes from day to day, I know from experience.
