Joe Cole has expressed his desire to succeed at Liverpool after returning from his season on loan with Lille.
Cole has failed to get off the mark after joining the club in July 2010 as a free transfer from Chelsea but vows that he will not leave the club without any success.
Cole told www.liverpoolfc.com:
“I don’t want to leave Liverpool one day having not been a success here or having left something here. I want to make an imprint at the club.
“I’ve been a success at West Ham, Chelsea and Lille – I don’t want people to be able to say that I haven’t here.
“I’d like to be given the opportunity to play, learn and improve, and join this great team. It’s a great group and I would like to be involved in this team and really push on.”
Roy Hodgson made Joe Cole his first signing as manager and gave the London born midfielder the number 10 shirt.
However a red card on his debut against Arsenal and an injury struck season with only nine team starts left Cole disappointed.
“Obviously when I came here, I was sent off in my first game and had a few little niggly injury problems.
“I think I only played something like 700-odd minutes of Premier League football in that season, so it was a tough season for me – by far and away the worst season in my career because I didn’t get going.
“I’d like to improve on that. I’d like to be a part of this great club, this team and everything about it – the city and everything.”
Cole joined French side Lille on loan last season where he would make 32 Ligue 1 appearances scoring four goals.
Lille failed to retain their Ligue 1 title by finishing 3rd and losing out to Montpellier, but Cole was happy with his time abroad.
“I loved it (in France). It was a risk and a gamble to come away from the Premier League.
“I loved the football and we had a successful season. The prerogative was for us to finish third and we managed that.
“It was a good group of lads and a good team at Lille.
Cole returned to the Liverpool training set up under new manager Brendan Rodgers on Wednesday and believes that the club can bounce back to battle into the top four.
“It does feel different this time – it feels like it’s ready to go. ”
“The fans will stick with us and we can do it all together – we can get the club back to where it should be.”
