Enrique ponders Magpies stay

29 May 2009 03:41
Newcastle United left-back Jose Enrique has admitted that he could stay with the Magpies to try to help them regain their Premier League status at the first attempt. The 23-year-old Spaniard moved to England two years ago from Villarreal and has made just over 50 appearances for the Tynesiders. He told Spanish newspaper Marca: "No-one likes to play in the Championship, but I'm only thinking about fulfilling my contract. "The team has a great budget and I am sure that if they do things well from the beginning, we can create a team of the level of Aston Villa. "I like the city and I am very happy in England, but that doesn't rule out that I will study any offer that could arrive. "Today, I see myself playing next season at Newcastle. "At the moment, I'm focused on my holidays. It was a bad time for me and I need to relax. It's been the longest year of my life."
