Former Liverpool defender Jose Enrique has taken to Instagram during the Premier League’s temporary postponement due to Covid 19 and has used the lack of football to remind the rest of the top-flight of what separates the Reds from the rest.
The Covid-19 outbreak has stopped all Premier League and Football League fixtures until April 3 – with both of Liverpool’s upcoming top-flight bouts against Everton and Crystal Palace temporarily postponed.
Jurgen Klopp’s team are just two wins away from mathematically securing their first league title since 1990 but recent events have led to talks of cancelling the current Premier League campaign altogether with still nine matches of the competition left to play.
Former Liverpool defender Enrique, who retired from professional football in 2017 but remains a keen Liverpool supporter and has represented Liverpool Legends, has posted on Instagram a picture which compares the number of European Cups won between the Reds and the rest of the top-six as well as Merseyside rivals Everton.
His post read: “Just a reminder….”
Of course, Liverpool have won six European Cups in their illustrious 127-year history compared to the other aforementioned clubs who have a combined six triumphs in the competition.
Three of those were won solely by Manchester United whereas the other victor in Europe’s greatest cup competition was Chelsea who were crowned continental kings eight years ago when Roberto Di Matteo inspired the Blues to victory against Bayern Munich in 2012.
Meanwhile, Liverpool are the current holders of the prestigious prize that is more coveted than any other trophy accross Europe. Klopp inspired the club to victory nine months ago in Madrid during the Reds’ 2-0 victory against Tottenham at the Wanda Metropolitano Stadium.
