Jose Enrique: Ex-Liverpool and Newcastle defender given all clear by surgeons

Jose Enrique thanks fans and ex-team-mates after the ‘most difficult part’ of his life.

Former Liverpool and Newcastle defender Jose Enrique says he has received the all clear following surgery to remove a brain tumour last year.

The Spaniard, 33, received the news on Tuesday after having his first MRI scan post-treatment last week.

He was told last May that he had a “one-in-a-million” type of tumour and could lose his sight.

“The area is clean and looking amazing,” Enrique said in a post on Instagram.
