What a day for Newcastle United! Beating Liverpool 2-0 at St James’ Park thanks to a Papiss Cisse double doesn’t even tell half the story.
Deep into the second half when the Magpies were cruising to victory, former Newcastle player Jose Enrique’s words truly came back to haunt him as he spent the last ten minutes in goal!
Just in case you need a reminder as to what Enrique said, this is what Jose stated just before he left Newcastle at the start of the season: “The club [Newcastle] are allowing all the major players in the team to go. The club will never again fight among the top six with this policy.”
Well, revenge is a dish best served cold, but it was Liverpool goalkeeper who got a bit hot under the collar and the let the afternoon’s frustrations get the better of him.
James Perch was a bit silly to trip Reina after the Spanish ‘keeper claimed a corner, but then Reina got up and head butted Perch, who then performed a fall worthy of an Oscar.
Reina was rightfully given his marching orders by referee Martin Atkinson and as Kenny Dalglish had already made three substitutes, Enrique was forced to go in goal.
Cue absolute hilarity within St James’ Park, plenty of chants aimed at Enrique and maybe this picture will be a lesson to the Spaniard that sometimes you should leave a club with your dignity intact, or it might just come back to bite you…
