Joe Cole: Liverpool Signing was more than Money

The recent signing of Joe Cole has caused a lot of criticism against the England national football player because other clubs like Arsenal and Tottenham were interested about him. Many people thought that the player only gave value to money. Now, Joe Cole has strongly stated that it was not for money that he came to Liverpool.
Cole said to the website of Liverpool that he wanted to get glory with Liverpool. He felt that Liverpool was the biggest club in England.

Joe Cole said, "I have played in London all my life. I could have stayed at Chelsea because the fans loved me and I won things, but I wanted to challenge myself and when I knew Liverpool were interested it was a no-brainer because they are the biggest club in the country.
This is a massive club. I tried to take everything out of the equation, take the financial and location side out and just thought in football terms."

Joe Cole also said that the new coach Roy Hodgson is an outstanding person and the coach has already made it clear to him that in the new season he wanted the position of Liverpool in EPL table would improve. Cole feels that it is a new and exciting challenge for him.
Right now, Liverpool is too much dependent on Gerrard and Fernando Torres. Cole thinks that it has to change if the club wants to get bigger success. He feels that all the players must become a strong unit.
