FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Euro zone banks need to do a better job in recognizing soured loans as their current ways of identifying troubled credit may be ineffective, European Central Bank supervisory chief Andrea Enria said on Tuesday.

"Particularly worrisome is the large share of exposures that have been directly transferred from stage one -- performing -- to stage three -- non-performing -- without passing through stage two -- underperforming," Enria said. "This could suggest that early-warning systems are ineffective."
