Liverpool fullback Jose Enrique is happy helping bring on the club's young players.

Enrique's value to Liverpool doesn't just extend to matters on the pitch after youngster Jack Robinson admitted he could learn much from his colleague after inking a new Anfield contract on Monday.

"It is really difficult to play at a high level at 18 years of age, but already he has," Enrique told of his teammate. "He is making good progress.

"Of course, he has to improve just like I did when I started - and I am still improving because I am still young. He has a big future at Liverpool I think.

"When he played in the League Cup, I tried to tell him some things I thought would be good.

"He's still young, he's a good lad and if he can keep improving he can be a very good player."
