Newcastle's Jose Enrique dismisses Zaragoza interest

Newcastle United fullback Jose Enrique has played down interest from Real Zaragoza.

"I arrived here with the objective of learning the English game and taking whatever chances I have to play," Enrique told the Sunday Sun. "Until now, things haven't been like I wanted.

"The change of manager and injuries have affected me, but I will wait and fight for a place in the team.

"Of course, I want to play, but I don't want to throw in the towel. Leaving the club? That's not entered my plans. My dream is to succeed in England.

"I would only accept leaving if Newcastle decided I was of no value to them. But that hasn't happened.

"My challenge is to work each day and fight for the chance to play. I do not feel inferior in comparison with other players in the squad."
