Cole: Liverpool captain Gerrard deserves to win Premier League title

Joe Cole says Liverpool captain Steven Gerrard deserves to win the Premier League one day. Gerrard, a Scouser and lifelong Liverpool player, has often spoken about his desire to pick up a championship winners' medal before the end of his career and Cole believes succeeding in that task would be fitting.

"He's a tremendous player. I've known Steven since I was 17 or 18 and I obviously trained and played with him for England for 10 years so I know what he's all about," said the 28-year-old.

"But when you see him in a Liverpool shirt he's even better. A player like him deserves to win the championship.

"I know that's what he wants over the next four to five years at the club.

"He's a fantastic player and if he plays well the team plays well and it's up to me now to assist him and try to help the club move on."
