Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers believes Joe Cole can have a big role to play at Anfield next season.

Cole was forced out on-loan to Lille last season as he failed to win over Kenny Dalglish.

But Rodgers knows Cole from their time together at Chelsea and is convinced the England playmaker can fit into his system.

"I know Joe well from my time at Chelsea. He's a wonderful talent," said Rodgers.
