Brendan Rodgers unsure of Cole future

Joe Cole, Liverpool midfielderLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers admitted that he’s unsure of midfielder Joe Cole’s future at the club.

The ex-England international has failed to make a significant impact at Anfield since his arrival in 2010, with many speculating that he could leave to join Premier League rivals QPR in January.

Despite netting in the Reds’ weekend victory over West Ham, the 31-year-old appears to be way down Rodgers’ pecking order at the club, with youngsters Suso and Raheem Sterling frequently making it into the starting XI.

When questioned about Cole, the Northern Irish coach confessed that he is unsure of his future ahead of the transfer window:

“I’m just going along game by game,” he told the SkySports.

“There is every opportunity for every player.

“It’s not just about the games. Every player gets a chance every single day to show what they are all about.

“Is his future here? You would have to ask him that.”

Rodgers went on to state that former Chelsea man will be given chances to impress should he remain at the club:

“The guy is still a Liverpool player and while he’s a Liverpool player I’ll work as hard as I can with my staff to try to make him the best we possibly can.

“If he’s not going to play as often as he wants then he’s no different to any player really. Players are about game time and money.

“But he’s not any kind of problem, he’s a good guy and we will see what happens over the coming months.”
