The Cole fire has often smouldered rather than exploded into flames and Rush believes itâs time for the 29-year-old to deliver.
âWith the talent he has, Joe doesnât want to be known as a nearly man,â Rush stated. âI am sure that playing regularly with Liverpool will give him the chance to prove he is a really top, top-class player. He can become a hero to The Kop.
âHe can change games and I was baffled when England didnât really give him a chance in the World Cup finals.
âIt was a big step for him to move up to Liverpool, something the fans appreciate. They are anxious for him to do well.â
