Jose Enrique

It's Christmas day, and Jose Enrique would like to wish the hundreds of thousands of Newcastle fans who log into nufc.co.uk from all over the world a merry Christmas.

The Spaniard wrote out an exclusive card to our website visitors ahead of our Boxing Day clash with Manchester City.

Fans' favourite Enrique said: "To all our fans, have a great day.

"I saw in Christmas at the house of Fabricio Coloccini and his family, along with my girlfriend Eva, and some of our friends, and it was great to watch the children open their presents. Colo's son, Tiago, even got a Spiderman outfit in honour of Jonas Gutierrez!

"We have training on Christmas day and of course the big game on Boxing Day, so we have to stay professional and focused.

"I'm looking forward to welcoming my friend from Valencia, David Silva, to St. James'. It will be a hard game but it should be a good one. We're full of confidence after beating Liverpool and hopefully a big crowd will help us to win."

Merry Christmas from Jose Enrique
