Cole keen to take second chance at Liverpool

Joe Cole has welcomed the opportunity to make a fresh start at Liverpool under Brendan Rodgers after telling the Liverpool Echo he did not want to be thought of as a flop at Anfield after a poor first season at the club.

Cole moved to Liverpool on a free transfer from Chelsea in 2010, signed by Roy Hodgson who was sacked only months later in January 2011. Cole was then loaned to French side Lille by Hodgson’s replacement, Kenny Dalglish, only to return to Merseyside this summer under Rodgers, who Cole knows from their time together at Chelsea when Rodgers was the reserve team manager.

The 30-year-old scored nine times in 42 games for Lille last season and is not set on reviving his Liverpool career, having made only nine starts for Liverpool out of a total 32 appearances. Cole added that he is onto his third Liverpool manager despite only playing one season at the club so far.

He continued: “I don’t want to leave Liverpool one day having not been a success here or having left something here. I want to make an imprint at the club. I’ve been a success at West Ham, Chelsea and Lille – I don’t want people to be able to say that I haven’t here.
