Joe Cole explains choosing Liverpool over Tottenham

Joe Cole admits he chose to move to Liverpool over Tottenham.

The midfielder signed for the Reds when leaving Chelsea.

He recalled to Four Four Two: "Staying in London would have been the logical thing to do. Harry Redknapp was the manager there, too, so it was a very easy fit.

"But I just didn't feel it was right, being a West Ham and Chelsea player and then going to play for Tottenham.

"It would have tarnished everything I did at Chelsea."
