West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole is pleased to see wingers return at the Boleyn Ground.

West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole is pleased to see wingers return at the Boleyn Ground.

Competition for wide positions in Sam Allardyce’s team has increased following last week’s signing of Stewart Downing from Liverpool but Cole believes that is a positive.

“Stewart is a good signing for us”, he said. “In world football these days everyone gets rotated in the wide positions apart from probable Cristiano Ronaldo.

“We have four good players in those wide positions now with Matt Jarvis, Stewart and Ricardo Vaz Te as well as myself and we all provide something different.”
