Cabaye advises Cole on Lille return

Newcastle midfielder Yohan Cabaye has suggested that Joe Cole should return to Lille, rather than trying to force his way into Brendan Rodgers' Liverpool plans.

After falling out of favour at Anfield during his first season at the club, Cole, 30, was sent out on loan to the French club last season, proving to be a relative success.

However, his aim of trying to regain his place in the Liverpool starting line-up this term has so far proved unsuccessful, with the midfielder having played just 32 minutes of Premier League football.

And Cabaye, 26, who spent 13 years at Lille, believes the former England international would be better off at his old club.

"It is not easy for him because he does not play much," Cabaye told L'Equipe. "It worked well for him at Lille. Maybe it would be a good idea for him to return there. The club, the coach and the fans love him at Lille. I've heard that Rudi Garcia would be interested to have him back."

Cole's Liverpool game-time this season has been limited to just four appearances, while Rodgers recently questioned the club's reported £90,000-a-week investment in the former Chelsea man.
