'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Pre Mackems: Enrique

Having started to get some pitch time in finally these last few months, Jose Enrique has given a player`s perspective of the Tyne Wear war tomorrow, with the lad obviously understanding exactly what it means to the fans at last. Enrique said:

'It's a huge game for me and for the whole city of Newcastle. I didn't need to be told how big it was. I know from last season how big this game is and what it means for the Geordie people.

Last year is a typical example, because after the game I had to wait in the stadium for nearly two hours when the fans went crazy in the city afterwards. So for these people, that shows how important it is. It's exactly like the Real Madrid-Barcelona game in La Liga.

I would say it is almost an equivalent in England, because the whole city will wait to see what the result is and it affects people's lives.

We know what happened last time and we weren't happy about it. Now we have to inflict some revenge. Hopefully, it will be our fans who are celebrating at the end this time. You only have to look at our position in the Premier League. We need to win this game to get out of the relegation area. There are two reasons to win for local pride and of course to climb away from danger.'
