Enrique demands Pool step up performance

Updated: March 27, 2012

Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has called on his teammates to stand up and be counted in the wake of their sides poor recent run of form.

The Spanish defender believes that the playing squad have to take their fair share of responsibility for their recent results which have seen them loose five out of their last six Premier League games.

Liverpool are 13 points behind fourth place Spurs in the race for that all important last Champions League place and Enrique feels that the time has come for the players to step up.

“The manager takes pressure for us and of course that is good,” said the Spaniard. “But the truth is, when we make mistakes or have a bad game, we know where the mistakes come from.

“In the cups we are doing well. In the league I think we deserve more than where we are now, but the truth is we are in seventh position. This team is in production; the owners have signed young players. I think we have a really good squad already but of course we have to improve – everyone.”
