Jose Enrique has aimed a swipe at former club Newcastle, admitting he is worried by the number of players leaving.
The Spaniard departed St James' Park for Liverpool earlier this month after refusing to sign a new deal.
Enrique believes Newcastle lack ambition and he expects more top players to follow him in exiting the North East.
"Yes, I do worry," admitted Enrique. "Not because we leave, because at some clubs good players leave. But they have not signed another left-back, nothing.
"I'm worried not for the club, but more for the fans because they are amazing. I have a lot of friends in the dressing room and they are a bit nervous.
"I think Joey Barton will leave soon. Andy Carroll left in January and it is really, really hard for Alan Pardew.
"You want to be as high as you can in the table, but maybe Newcastle don't think the same. That is why they sell their best players and that is why everyone moves.
"The dressing room at Newcastle is fantastic, it is amazing, 10 out of 10, but of course it is hard for the players when the best players leave.
"It is not settled like it is here at Liverpool and I think that is why everyone is leaving Newcastle."
