Enrique has backed Chris Hughtonâ€™s cup policy to pay dividends in the future.
The ÂŁ6m former La Liga star told the Evening Chronicle: â€śFergie is doing very well.
â€śIt is very important that they play, and if that means in the Carling Cup then OK, itâ€™s good for their experience.
â€śHe needs to get minutes. It was the same for me a few years ago at Villarreal â€“ they gave me minutes in the cup games. It does you the world of good.
â€śTraining hard is important, but you canâ€™t buy the experience of playing games.â€ť
