Wright-Phillips grateful to Chelsea pal Cole

Shaun Wright-Phillips says his stunning form this season for Chelsea and England is partly due to teammate Joe Cole.

"Joe Cole is an idol for everybody and I am a believer that you can learn off every player you work with," he said. "To have someone who has been through it is a plus.

"Me and Coley are really good friends and chat about all sorts of things.

"The most important thing is that we enjoy each other's company and there is a tight bond there."
