Cole delighted with goal scoring Liverpool performance

Joe Cole was delighted to hit his first goal for Liverpool in their Europa League victory over Steaua Bucharest.

Cole, whose Kop career to date has been stalled by a Prem ban, showed just why he was snapped up from Chelsea as he made the most of a horror back-pass from Octavian Abduran.

He said: "There was a lot of frustration after a month without playing. It has been stop-start but I was happy to get the first goal for the team.

"The suspension seemed to last ages. I just want to get back into it now."

Cole, sent off against Arsenal in his opening game for the Merseysiders, added after firing in the fastest-ever European goal at Anfield: "It was a great start in the competition.

"You have to win your home games, so this is massive. If you win three at home and get a draw away, you're through."
