Hamann: Cole best Liverpool signing over last decade

Former Liverpool star Didi Hamann rates the arrival of Joe Cole as the club's best signing in ten years.

Cole signed for Liverpool last month on a Bosman from Chelsea.

Hamann said: "If you had asked me two weeks ago I would have said doom and gloom but the arrival of Joe Cole has made a hell of a ­difference.

"For a London boy to go up north, which hasn't really happened in the last few years, and to turn down Spurs, Arsenal, maybe Real Madrid to go to Liverpool sends a ­massive statement out to the rest of the league."

Hamann, 36, back in ­England as player-coach with MK Dons, added: "It's probably the best bit of news for the club in the last 10 years."
