New Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole says he is looking forward to helping Fernando Torres score more goals for the team, as the new Premier League season fast approaches.
Cole made his debut for the Reds on Sunday during the 1-0 friendly defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach in Germany, but could make his competitive debut in this Thursday’s Europa League third qualifying round second leg against FK Rabotnicki at Anfield.
With Fernando Torres returning to training today, Cole says he hopes to start playing with the Spanish World Cup winning striker soon.
He said, “One of the main reasons I came to Liverpool was because I wanted to play with these great players and I’m going to work every day to make Fernando as many chances as I can.
“I’ve been watching the way he plays ever since he came to the club and, the season before last, he was the best striker in the world, without a shadow of a doubt.
“I love playing with strikers who play on the shoulder of the last defender. The best striker I played with at Chelsea was Crespo; his movement was absolutely unbelievable.
“I had a good relationship with him and hopefully I will be able to have that kind of relationship with Fernando. My job is to make chances for the front men and I can’t wait to play alongside him.”
