Joe Cole is expectant after signing new deal with Liverpool
When Joe Cole was a teenager,he was regarded as视为the boy talent of English football and built up a career that many footballers can only dream of.However,it seems that his early promise has never been truly fulfilled实现。
At the 2010 World Cup,28-year-old Cole only made just two brief appearances as a substitute替补。In July 2010 Cole moved to Liverpool on a free transfer自由转会in an attempt to begin a new start in his career.
A player like Joe needs to feel his manager believes in him and that has perhaps not been the case at Chelsea and England.
Keith Blunt,Cole's former coach
Keith Blunt,who was Cole's former coach and saw first hand第一手、直接地how talented the young Cole was,believes this is an opportunity for Cole to revive复活、重新崛起。
He believes Livepool has shown a clear signal that Cole is really wanted there.He is sure Roy Hodgson,the new Reds manager,will get the best out of Cole让科尔人尽其才。
Cole's former team mate Steve Lomas,who played alongside Cole at West Ham from 1998 to 2003,also says Cole's move to Liverpool is the right thing for the midfielder.He believes this is Cole's big chance to prove证实himself and feels the player will finally fulfill his early ambition.
He thinks the reason for Cole not shining as brightly as he might have in the past,is that he wasn't given the right role at West Ham,Chelsea and England.
What held Joe back阻碍was that nobody really knew his best position.

Keith Blunt still offers many anecdotes轶事to demonstrate why he holds Cole in such high regard高度评价。His favourite is how Cole scored the most unbelievable winner over Norway in the final of the under-17 Nordic Tournament in Finland.
At that moment a bad clearance dropped on Joe,however,he controlled it with a calm touch.He then turned away from a defender防守球员before hitting the most incredible strike射门with his left foot into the top corner.
"I can remember asking Joe how he did it and he couldn't explain it.It was just pure class绝对经典and he still has it in him有能力。"
Liverpool will surely be hoping Blunt is right.
