Rio Ferdinand has wished Joe Cole all the best for his second tenure at West Ham United. Cole has recently joined West Ham United for the second time.

Cole had started his career at West Ham United in 1998. He played for the Irons for five years. In 2003, he left West Ham to join Chelsea. He featured for the Irons in 126 matches and scored 10 goals during his first tenure.

Ferdinand was also a West Ham United player between 1996 and 2000. So, Cole is his former teammate.

Cole made his debut for West Ham United for the second time by playing in the recently played FA Cup match against the Red Devils. Cole’s performance was brilliant in the match.

When asked about Cole’s return to West Ham United, Ferdinand said, “When we were playing for West Ham United, it was a very strong side. But, unfortunately, most of the good players left West Ham after a few years which weakened the team. But, Cole has gone there again and I am sure his entry in the club for the second time will strengthen their squad.”

“The way Cole performed against us on Saturday shows that he is still a fine player and can put up fantastic performances against the top quality teams.”

“I want him to do well in the upcoming matches as well. He is a very good friend of mine and I wish him all the very best for his second spell for West Ham. Hopefully, he will maintain his good form in the remaining part of the season.”

“Whenever I get time, I watch the matches of the West Ham team. It’s my first club and I really want them to do well. They have played well in the Premier League in this season and I am happy for them.”
