Former England and Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole announces retirement

Joe Cole The midfielder said'being a professional footballer is an honour
Sidney Guerrero | 15 November, 2018, 16:02

The Belgian midfielder heaped praise on Joe Cole for encouraging him to consider a switch to the West London team when during their time together at Lille.

In 2003, he joined Chelsea, with whom he won three Premier League titles and two FA Cups and reached the 2007-08 Champions League final.

Cole also won the League Cup and Community Shield with Chelsea.

But Cole kept hammering the reasons why he should consider Chelsea over others.

"I spoke to Cole before I signed for Chelsea", Hazard told Chelsea's official website. "Every day, seriously, he was telling me that Chelsea was the best club for me", he revealed on Twitter.

"Winning trophies at Chelsea was particularly special for me".

"Simply, to the managers, coaches, backroom staff and everyone who has helped me along the way: thank you".

A 2 1/2-year spell at Liverpool saw Cole make only 42 appearances, scoring five goals.

They then used a phenomenon known as the Doppler effect to track the impact of its gravitational pull on its parent star. Barnard's Star b has surface temperatures of 150C, rocky terrain and is about 3.2 times the size of Earth.

Now, Pies would be fibbing to you if we said we thought Cole was actually still active, as the last we remember he was out in the States with Tampa Bay Rowdies, though that all seemed to go quiet a year or so ago.

He is now the Premier League top goal scorer this term.

Cole said in a statement: "After 20 years as a professional, the time has come for me to hang up my boots".

Cole, 37, made 716 professional appearances and scored 104 goals for seven clubs, completing his career with Tampa Bay Rowdies in the United Soccer League. My dreams came true.

Former England midfielder Joe Cole announced his retirement on Tuesday after making more than 700 appearances for seven clubs including West Ham and Chelsea.

He wrote the post at Instagram in which thanked "countless people have helped" him through that path.

Cole went on to say that his favorite thing about being a professional footballer was "the feeling you enjoy after coming back into the dressing room after a win". "It will be hard to replicate that but I'll always remember all of my former team-mates who I shared that experience with." .
