Liverpool have returned to pre-season training today, with two of the club’s forgotten men tweeting a picture of their first training session. Jose Enrique took to social media following the club’s first day of training, tweeting a picture of himself with fellow Spaniard Suso.
Enrique missed much of last season through injury, with Jon Flanagan deputising with aplomb at left-back. Enrique was restricted to just eight league appearances and will be eager to prove to manager Brendan Rodgers that he can return to fitness and take the club’s vacant left-back role.

The 28- year-old is likely to face tougher task in regaining his place than he did prior to his injury, with Rodgers reportedly looking to add another left-back to his team.
Enrique is joined by Suso in needing to make a point this pre-season, with the latter having just returned from a successful loan spell at Almeria.
The 20-year-old’s future is uncertain following his loan spell, due to the number of players ahead of him in the Anfield pecking order. Reports suggest that Suso could leave Liverpool, with Porto previously linked to the youngster, who scored three goals and provided seven assists in La Liga last season.
22% of the chances Suso created last season were scored.
