The Liverpool legend Ian Rush thinks that the signing of Joe Cole is “fantastic” and he is absolutely perfect to work behind Fernando Torres in the Liverpool midfield.
“I think it’s a fantastic buy,” said the club’s record goalscorer.
“When you look at what we’ve got attacking-wise we’ve got younger lads but we needed more experience and Cole brings that.
“Joe could play just behind Fernando Torres. People don’t know his position because he can play on the left, right and just off the striker, and I think it’s a wonderful signing.
“Skill-wise he is the best in England – there is no one better.
“I’m sure Roy Hodgson will play him in every game, especially if he is playing well, and maybe getting regular football is a reason why he has come to Liverpool.
“To get Joe to come out of London and come to Liverpool is a coup for Hodgson himself.
“A lot of people were expecting him to stay in London because that’s where he was born and been brought up.
“I think this sends a sign out to Liverpool supporters that the club do mean business.”
Rush also thinks that bringing in Cole will also persuade the established players like Torres and Gerrard that Liverpool are looking to start challenging for trophies again next season.
He continued: “I think he (Hodgson) has had a chat with Torres, met with Steven Gerrard and he’ll have been saying to them ‘We’ve got a chance of getting Joe Cole’,”
“Buying Joe will tell them all is not lost.
“Joe Cole has that bit of character, he can do something out of nothing and has the creative ability that Torres comes alive to, Gerrard too.”
