Jose Enrique wishes Liverpool centre-half a happy 30th birthday
Jose Enrique has taken to Instagram to wish Liverpool team-mate Martin Skrtel happy birthday.
The Slovakia international turned 30 on Monday morning, but the centre-half won’t feel in a celebratory mood after Liverpool suffered a 3-0 defeat by Manchester United on Sunday.
Skrtel started alongside struggling Dejan Lovren and England international Glen Johnson in a back three, but the trio were powerless to prevent Wayne Rooney, Juan Mata and Robin van Persie finding the net.
But Spanish defender Enrique proved that he has a good memory for birthdays as the Liverpool full-back wished his defensive colleague a happy 30th birthday on Instagram and Twitter.
Enrique wrote: “Happy birthday my friend @martin37skrtel”
Skrtel has been a mainstay of the Liverpool defence since Brendan Rodgers took over as manager in May 2012.
