Joe Cole says Liverpool's tour of Asia was ideal for the players.

Cole featured for 45 minutes as Liverpool ran out 6-3 winners in front of over 80,000 fans against a Malaysia XI on Saturday.

It was yet another highlight on what proved to be a hugely successful Asia tour.

Cole told "It's been fantastic. To have that many fans for a friendly game was unbelievable. It was a full house, there were flares - everything.

"You see what Liverpool means to these people. It's my first proper tour with Liverpool and it's a great way to start the season.

"Everyone has enjoyed it. We've scored lots of goals, had no injuries and claimed two wins. It's been a successful tour."
