Joe Cole – magic feet
After a rather forgetable season – which appeared to average a playing time of about 28 seconds per match – most of the football-watching world has probably forgotten that Joe Cole was once a cheerful little pup with a bag of tricks to rival any professional wizard’s hilarious suitcase.
But now, he just looks really moody all of the time. Plus he’s got the beginnings of a classic Zidane bald patch. What’s that about?
Anyway, in a bid to remind the planet that Joe Cole is really good at footie, Steven Gerrard has gone so far as to compare him to Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo – albeit only in training. He said this, as reported in today’s Mirror:
“Joe Cole does some amazing stuff in training.”
“He’s as good as Messi or Ronaldo on the ball, and he’ll give any player a run for their money when it comes to tricks.”
