Has Fat Boy Lost His Strength?

The Spaniard completed 90 minutes against Real Mallorca but he has lost so much weight Kevin Keegan thinks he should pump the weights (like Alan Shearer used to) to get back his upper body strength
The United boss admits he has been looking for a left-back since the end of last season, and that puts pressure on the Spanish under-21 international.

Enrique was pushed off the ball with ease at Doncaster Rovers and Stuart Elliott got the better of him at the Keepmoat Stadium to score the winner.

Keegan: "Looking back to the Doncaster goal, it was just sloppy from Jose more than anything.

"I don't think you can put it down to him losing weight, he made a decision thinking he had loads of time.

"I felt sorry for goalkeeper Tim Krul, because he did everything right, and was just left with no chance.

"The lad finished it very well, but it was a goal which should never have been.

"It was a little bit too easy. Jose has to understand the danger in those situations, and has to deal with it.

"He seemed to be thinking he had all the time in the world.

"He has come back and he has lost weight.

"He was told to come back fitter than he left - he was a little bit heavy, I think - and he has done that.

"Now he just has to put the work in."
