Cole to seek Liverpool exit after Cup humiliation

Joe Cole is expected to seek a move away from Liverpool after this week's Capital One Cup humiliation. Reds boss Brendan Rodgers set the tone for widespread condemnation of the former England forward's first start since August 2 by substituting him at half-time and bluntly telling him he had blown his big chance.

The Liverpool manager even turned the spotlight on Cole's £90,000-a-week wages, saying: "The club have invested an astronomical amount of money in a talented player, and Joe had the opportunity to show what he could do.

"But the way we started was too slow and not what I expected from a team I tried to set up to be dynamic."
