Jose Enrique reveals brain tumour surgery

23 June 2018 10:56

Former Liverpool and Newcastle United defender Jose Enrique has announced that he is recovering from a rare brain tumour.

The 32-year-old, who retired last year due to a persistent knee injury, was diagnosed with the brain condition a month ago after suffering from migraines.

The Spaniard has since undergone surgery to remove the tumour and is now in recovery.

Posting on Instagram, Enrique said: "Sorry I haven't been around much, it has been the toughest few weeks of my life.

"Within the space of one month I have found out the news that I have a rare brain tumor and had surgery to have it removed, I am now in recovery and so thankful.

"Life is too precious."

Liverpool were among the first to send their best wishes, tweeting: "Wishing you a full and speedy recovery, Jose.

"Our thoughts are with you and your family."
