Steven Gerrard: Joe Cole Is Better Than Messi

Liverpool and England midfielder Steven Gerrard has come out and made a very bold or some might say ridiculous statement about his new teammate Joe Cole.

“Messi can do some amazing things, but anything he can do Joe can do as well, if not better. He used to shock us in training by doing footy tricks with a golf ball that most players can’t even do with a football. I really fancy Joe for the [player of the year] award this season.”

I’m not sure if i should laugh or i should cry at hearing about this rubbish. I understand that he’s excited to get a good player like Joe Cole but to say he’s better than Messi is a big exaggeration.

If you ask football fans around the world if they had a to choose between Lionel Messi and Joe Cole to start a team i have doubts that anyone with the slightest bit of comm sense will not choose Cole.

I’ll give Gerrard a pass on this one unders the belief that he had a too much to drink before he got interviewed, kids don’t drink alcohol it will make you delusional.
