Enrique backs 'brilliant' Carroll
Jose Enrique is backing Liverpool striker Andy Carroll to shine at Anfield this season.
Carroll joined Liverpool from Newcastle in January for £35 million but struggled for fitness following the move, and he did not make his debut for the club until March after failing to recover from a thigh injury.
Enrique, who signed for the Reds last week, played alongside the 22-year-old at Newcastle, and is confident that a fit-again Carroll will rediscover his goalscoring form, having netted twice in eight Premier League appearances to date.
"For us in Newcastle he was brilliant and I am sure he will be brilliant for Liverpool. He is a very good player. When a club like Liverpool pays £35 million for Andy I know it is not lucky.
"It is because they think he is a good player. I am sure he is going to do a lot of things very good for us. He is playing very well in his position and he is going to be an important player this season."
