Rodgers welcomes Cole return

Brendan Rodgers has declared that Joe Cole is ready to fight for a place in Liverpool's squad again following hamstring trouble.

Cole, who has been out since limping off during the 3-0 Premier League defeat at West Brom on August 18, featured as an overage player for the club's Under-21 game against Fulham on Monday, and scored in a 3-0 win.

Rodgers is keen to make regular use of the 30-year-old, who returned to Anfield in the summer following a season on loan at Lille.

The Liverpool manager said: "His attitude's been superb. Joe really thinks he can contribute to the group, which is great. It's unfortunate that he's been out. He's come back a couple of times and didn't quite get through fitness wise.

"He was out for eight weeks. He's trained for a couple of weeks. He's had his first game, scored a good goal. Joe's fit. He'll be back into training now and looking to fight for a place in the squad.

"He loves his football, Joe. And he's now fit enough to fight for his position in the group. That's what he'll look to do."
