Former Newcastle United defender Jose Enrique has been left on edge at his old side’s Premier League standing when the season hit pause due to coronavirus.

“Well, you never know in the Premier League,” Enrique told Sky Sports News (23/03/20 at 8:05 am) when asked if Newcastle can avoid relegation.

United missed out on safety during the 08/09 season by a single point to Hull City, who held a worse goal difference, but bounced back the next year to clinch the Championship title and would not be relegated again until after Enrique left for Liverpool.

But Enrique cannot rule out Newcastle being dragged into the relegation fight, as he feels nothing is ever guaranteed in the Premier League.

Eight points is a good distance, but they have to keep going well when things get going again.” Enrique knows all about being relegated from the Premier League having been a part of the 2008/09 side that fell into the Championship after an 18th-placed finish, so is well-placed to offer his view on the club’s current predicament.

The former Spain U21 international would go on to clinch the only silverware of his career with the 2012 EFL Cup whilst on the books at Anfield.

The ongoing pandemic saw all remaining fixtures postponed until after, at least, April 30, and question marks still linger over if, let alone when, the campaign will continue.
