Liverpool star midfielder Joe Cole has lauded the signing of Andy Carroll, with the England international telling LFC weekly that Carroll can be compared to Chelsea striker Didier Drogba, only with more potential.
"He's very much like Didier Drogba," Liverpool teammate Cole said.
"Andy's 22 - we all know what a cracking player Didier is, but he wasn't playing at this level at that age.”
Liverpool paid a record £35 million to bring Carroll from Newcastle to Anfield, and while Carroll has yet to score a goal in the red shirt, he scored his first goal in the three lions shirt for England last night in a friendly with Ghana.
Cole believes Carroll will only get better, and when looking at what a player of Drogba’s caliber has done, the sky will be the limit for the 22 year old Liverpool starlet.
"There's still a lot of developing for Andy to do so he can get better and better,” Cole said.
