Liverpool defender Jose Enrique is confident that Barcelona and Spain's style of play can flourish in the Premier League.

New boss Brendan Rodgers has been quick to impose his philosophy on the Reds following his summer arrival from Swansea.

"It hasn't worked here because no-one has tried," the 26 year old said.

"In Spain six years ago people said you couldn't win with tiki-taka and small players. At the moment Barcelona win everything."

Enrique has spent five years in England, the first four with Newcastle.

"I hope this is the future of football rather than just kick the ball to the striker," he said.

"In Spain many teams play like this.

"Of course, it depends on the quality of the players, but we are trying.

"We are doing well at the moment because we have only been together for one month."
