Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole has vowed to be a hit at Anfield after two years of struggle to break into the Reds first team.

Cole scored in Liverpool’s Europa League draw with Young Boys on Thursday and after a successful loan spell with Lille last season, the former West Ham youngster will do everything he can to be successful on Merseyside.

“It was nice to be out and playing. It’s been a long time since I got one in front of the Kop.

“It was my third game back from injury and I’ve felt stronger in every game I’ve played.

“But there’s no rocket science about it — if you’re a footballer and you return from injury for one game and after that you play a second, you feel a little bit better and in the third game, you feel better still.

“You have more fitness and match strength. I’ll continue to try my best and we’ll see what happens.

“I just need to keep going and keep plugging away.”

    Joe cole could be a great player if he gives it his all week in and week out but no matter how hard he tries i do think he should take a pay cut on the understanding if he does well he can go back to his wage, he is a very nice person but his wage is ridicols

    One frigging average performance against YB and the city of Liverpool including Joe Cole think the player has what it takes to succeed. This is tantamount to Jamie Hoofer Carragher making an accurate pass to a team mate standing 5 yards from him and every living Liverpudlian goes gaga over Carra’s ‘outstanding’ achievement.
