Lille ace Cole: I played my best football under Mourinho at Chelsea

Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole admits he enjoyed playing for Jose Mourinho at Chelsea.

Cole is now reviving his career on-loan at Lille.

Mourinho went on to great success with Inter Milan after leaving London and is now trying to topple Barcelona and re-establish Real Madrid as the top team in Spain.

Cole said: "Mourinho was just great to play for, you knew where you stood. Looking back I played my best football under him. I won my most trophies under him. He used to get on my back so much but I can't thank him enough for it.

"If he goes and wins the league, that is the biggest achievement from any manager at any time because that Barcelona team is something else."
