Cole: I should've chose Spurs over Liverpool

West Ham United midfielder Joe Cole admits he regrets signing for Liverpool.

Cole says his Anfield move was a career killer.

He revealed to cfuk: “I can only play for teams that I’m passionate about and I think that’s what went wrong for me at Liverpool.

“I didn’t feel a connection with the club or the place that I had at Chelsea and West Ham.

“I had seven great years at Chelsea but the club wanted to go in a certain direction and I wasn’t involved. So I was left with two real options — Liverpool or Spurs.

“Spurs was probably the best option because they were offering me a five-year deal and it meant I could stay in familiar surroundings.

“But I just couldn’t do it, I just couldn’t see myself pulling that Spurs shirt over my head.

“With the rivalry between Spurs and West Ham and Chelsea, it felt a bit mercenary.”
