In a recent interview, Joe Cole shared that he has rejected a move to Tottenham giving the reason that fans of Chelsea wouldn’t have granted him an apology for this act. Cole was in West Ham and the Blues in the year 2003. Here, he won three titles of Premier League, scoring their impressive goal opposite Manchester United in the year 2006.
In the exclusive interview, he said: “Continuing his stay in London is the logical thing he did, that time Harry Redknapp was the manager, and so it was not difficult for him to perfectly fit there. But now, I am getting the feeling that it was not the right move, being a player of Chelsea and West Ham and then going to play matches for the team of Tottenham. Had I have done, I would have spoiled everything that I did during my stay in Chelsea.”
Cole, turned out for Aston Villa, Coventry and Lille ahead of before calling time on his career last November with Tampa Bay Rowdies, he also accepts that Chelsea is the club, where he enjoyed playing the most, and now he is hoping to inspire the coming generation being a coach with the outfit of west London.
He said “I will always have a special place for West Ham in my heart, but being a kid you always dream to win trophies. It is special playing for Chelsea.” he added.
