Enrique revels in Carling Cup victory

27 February 2012 13:25

Jose Enrique has described Liverpool's Carling Cup final penalty shootout victory on Sunday as the best feeling he has had in football.

Enrique, 26, had never won a major trophy before beating Cardiff at Wembley Stadium.

The Spaniard said he thought Liverpool's chance to win the game had gone when Ben Turner equalised with three minutes to go in extra-time.

But Kenny Dalglish's side emerged victorious on penalties after Steven Gerrard's cousin, Anthony, missed a crucial spot-kick to hand Liverpool victory.

Enrique told the club's official website: "I didn't know this feeling before. It's amazing to win something like this."

"When Cardiff scored the second, if I'm honest I thought we might lose the game, so it's an amazing feeling - I can't explain it."

"It's the best feeling I ever had in football, for sure."

Former Newcastle United man also spoke of his relief at not having to take a spot-kick, revealing his belief that he is not a good penalty taker.

"If I had to take one, I would take one - but if I'm honest I didn't want to because I'm no good at taking penalties," he said.

Enrique went on to praise Liverpool's fans and dedicated the victory to them, before targeting more success in this year's FA Cup.

"Like always they (the fans) were amazing - that's no surprise," he said.

"This is for them as well. They enjoy it like we do - maybe even more. It's amazing but now we have the league games and the FA Cup."

"I'll celebrate with my family and friends and I am really, really, really happy."
