The X Factor beckons for Liverpool pair Jose Enrique and Suso
The X Factor could beckon for Jose Enrique and Suso after Mario Balotelli uploaded a video of the Liverpool pair singing a tribute to the striker in the swimming pool.
Former Newcastle United left-back Enrique is set to miss the trip to his former club on Saturday as he nurses a knee injury which kept him sidelined for the last three matches.
Suso, who was being linked with a move to AC Milan in the summer transfer window, is recovering from a groin operation after picking up the problem last month.
And the Spanish duo were caught on camera by Balotelli signing a song in Spanish dedicated to the controversial 24-year-old Italy international.
Balotelli wrote on Instagram: “Jose and Suso .. That cute voices they have :- ) lol ! I want to see if they sing in English too!
While Enrique’s vocal chords seem ok if a little out of tune, Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers confirmed the defender is still struggling with a knee injury.
“Jose is still not available, it’s just an issue with his knee,” Rodgers told his pre-match media conference.
“He won’t be available for the squad.”
