Jose Enrique was all smiles with his girlfriend at Liverpool’s Christmas dinner on Sunday night.

The Reds defender has been out-of-favour at Anfield this season under Jurgen Klopp and his predecessor Brendan Rodgers after falling behind Alberto Moreno in the pecking order.

Enrique, 29, has been managing a long-term knee problem over the past 18 months or so which has limited the former Newcastle United full-back to just nine appearances since 31 August 2014.

The Liverpool defender has been unusually quiet on social media after Enrique opted to delete his Instagram and Twitter accounts earlier this year, too.

However, his fiance Amy Jaine uploaded a snap of the pair at Liverpool’s Christmas party following a 3-0 loss to Watford at Vicarage Road in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

Jaine wrote on his Instagram page: “LFC Christmas dinner ✨”

Enrique hasn’t made an appearance for the Merseyside outfit since a goalless draw with Bolton Wanderers in the fourth round of the FA Cup in January 2014.
