Liverpool left-back Jose Enrique has said that he deserves a place in Spain's national squad ahead of next year's UEFA European Championship.

"I think I deserve a chance," he was quoted as saying by leading Spanish sports daily Marca, while acknowledging that Valencia player Jordi Alba "is doing a very good job" in the left-back role for Spain.

"I think that just for the fact that I've managed to play for a team like Liverpool, they should be thinking of me" for the Spain squad, added the Spaniard, who moved to Liverpool from Newcastle in August.

Liverpool were set to host Blackburn on Monday in the English Premier League.
