Joe Cole has been told in no certain terms by coach Ancelotti that he needs to up his game and “could do better”
“Joe could do better,” said Ancelotti
“For him it’s an important moment. He came back from the injury and he has an important appointment to achieve this season.
“The World Cup means it’s important to play well for Chelsea.
“At this moment he has good mental attitude and good condition but he must improve his confidence.
“For Joe, the World Cup is an important motivation. I think he has a lot of possibility to play in the World Cup but he knows Capello will look at his performances.”
So looks like what the boss is saying is that Cole’s performances will improve once his confidence does.
Theres also Cole’s contract issue, he will become a free agent come the end of the season but Ancelotti has confirmed they want to kep him and working to that end.
“We know he could sign for another club and we are talking with him.
“I think Joe Cole is an important player and he knows that.
“We are confident in Joe that he wants to stay.”
Hope so, Cole on his day can be brilliant, we need to keep players like him for the squad depth at least.
