Cole was speaking to Ian Wright on Absolute Radioâ€™s Rock N Roll Football after his goalscoring performance.
â€śIâ€™m tired, very tired â€“ was a tough game but was a well fought victory and Iâ€™m delighted to get the win and the goal as well.
â€ťWeâ€™ve had busy but good pre-season. Nineteen games in total, itâ€™s been a long one. Weâ€™ve been all over in Germany, Portugal, Ireland and with all of that preparation itâ€™s important to have a good start and we did that today.
â€śItâ€™s the first time Iâ€™ve completed a pre-season in a very long time so Iâ€™m over the moon. Iâ€™m not old, but you know as you get older itâ€™s important to train to the maximum in every session.â€ť
