COLE WANTS TO STAY WITH LILLE

Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole has said that he wants to stay with French club Lille beyond the end of the season. The midfielder is currently on loan at the French club from Liverpool after failing to impress at Merseyside in his first season.

COLE BACKS MOURINHO RETURN

Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole has said that José Mourinho would be the perfect man to manage at Chelsea this time around as well. José Mourinho left Chelsea after falling out with the owner back in 2007, but he is still regarded in high esteem by the fans and the players at the club.

NEW START FOR COLE

Joe Cole’s decision to move out of the English League championship was followed by the fact that he will be moving out of Liverpool to join Lille on a loan.

This West Ham United captain does hope to bring about a lot of changes to Lille with his performance. Liverpool was probably not quite the platform Joe was looking for.

He might have started off on a good note with the club and had amazing array of skills, but eventually due to ailments and numerous penalty misses and other related reasons, he was made to sit on the bench for the majority of the appearances in the last season.
