When Jose Enrique arrived at Anfield he started very brightly and would have impressed all Liverpool fans.
However, he then went off the boil for a while and also had some injury problems.
The upshot being that Brendan Rodgers was left unconvinced by him and at some point last season looked like he could leave Liverpool, but the left back came back into the side later in the season and produced the goods...
Bringing in Aly Cissokho will increase the competition in this area but Enrique, as he told the official website, has welcomed this.
He said: 'I welcome the competition. If Liverpool sign another left-back then I understand it because it was just me here last season.
'Sometimes Glen Johnson had to play left-back. We need two players for every position, and I like it when I have competition.
'If you have somebody there who is really fighting for your position then it can bring more out of you because you know if you don't play well then you'll lose your place.
'Hopefully that helps me and I can play at my level as I did in the first six months when I first arrived at Liverpool.'
You definitely do need competition for places, this keeps people on their toes and also prevents complacency from setting in so can only be a good thing for Liverpool.
It'll be interesting to see what does happen, although you wouldn't have thought Cissokho has been brought in to warm the bench...
