Happy to secure a move to the Reds

After a long month of Summer speculation, England midfielder Joe Cole has decided to join Liverpool. The England midfielder turned down the likes of Tottenham and Arsenal to move to Anfield on a free transfer after his release from Chelsea despite the Reds failing to qualify for the UEFA Champions League last season.

Chelsea are said to have let the tricky midfielder go after they were not willing to meet his hefty wage demands. Roy Hodgson has revealed that Steven Gerrard was a major factor in Joe Cole’s decision to move to Liverpool. The fact that the 62 year old has stated his desire to keep stars such as Torres, Mascherano, Gerrard and Reina  played a heavy part in Cole’s desire to join the Merseyside club.

Gerrard played a vital role in persuading Cole to Join the Anfield outfit.

Hodgson is extremely happy at securing the services of the experienced midfielder after he joined up with the training camp In Switzerland on Tuesday to finalise the deal!

“I am pleased to get the player because it is very important to try to improve our squad as much as we can in order to reach the high goals we have set ourselves,” Hodgson told talkSPORT.

Just one of the tricks in his bag.


“It is also pleasing the reaction of the fans has been as positive as our reaction, so at the moment that is perfect.

“Now it is up to Joe to show on the field he is the right man.”

Let’s be honest, Lucas is shite and it is about time they found another quality midfielder. I’m a United fan, but let’s hope for the good of the league that Joe can make a difference at Anfield after a dismal 2009/2010 campaign!
