Enrique would welcome Downing competition at Liverpool left-back

Jose Enrique would be happy to compete with Stewart Downing as Liverpool's first-choice left-back.

Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has suggested Downing's long-term position could be at fullback.

"It's a good thing because before (Downing played left-back) there was just myself and Jack Robinson," Enrique told "With the way we intend to play, that is with the right-back and left-back attacking, Stewart can fit in well.

"He's a good lad and I'm happy for him. We have many, many games this year and so it's good to have competition for places."
