Former Liverpool FC left-back Jose Enrique met with fans of the Anfield club today to celebrate the opening of the official Liverpool FC store at Mirdif City Centre Mall in Dubai at a special event organised by Seventy-8, the club’s official retail partner.
At the new Liverpool club store in Dubai, the Spaniard met with Liverpool fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures with hundreds of supporters in attendance.
“The level of support for Liverpool FC around the world is well-known, and the passion for the Reds can definitely be felt here in Dubai and the UAE,” said Enrique. “To be a part of bringing official Liverpool FC stores to our fans in the region and bring our worldwide family closer to Anfield is very special.”
