Cole was speaking to Ian Wright on Absolute Radio‚Äôs Rock N Roll Football after the opening day win.
‚ÄúStuart Downing, I have to say was brilliant today. You know what you‚Äôre going to get with Stu, he‚Äôs a proper winger. He‚Äôs changed his game and caused all sorts of problems when he came on.
