Joe Cole, whose agent offered the player to United in the summer, only for Sir Alex Ferguson to decline, has confessed he loves playing at Old Trafford.
“I love playing against Manchester United,” said Cole. “I always have. Old Trafford is a great place to play and there is no better stadium to get a result. At Liverpool with the added rivalry between the clubs, it is going to be really exciting. I’m really looking forward to it. It can be a game that you use as a yardstick to measure your season but if we take a result away from Old Trafford it will be really good.”
Give that he’s a Liverpool player who used to play for Chelsea, he should be expecting a lot of stick tomorrow. Chelsea rent boy!
