Cole believes Liverpool are living in the past.
He told cfuk: “When I joined, the guy interviewing me said ‘you’ve joined the biggest club in the country’ and reeled off the trophies they’d won.
“I just said ‘yeah, if you put it like that, I suppose you’re right’ and Liverpool used that as the headline to the interview.
“I didn’t want to upset anyone so I just went along with it. But obviously they’re not the biggest club in the country any more.
“How do you judge how big a club are? Nottingham Forest won the European Cup twice but they’re not a bigger club than Chelsea.”
