Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish has praised the application and attitude of Joe Cole, but says he would not stand in the midfielder's way should he want to pursue opportunities away from Liverpool.

Cole's time on Merseyside has hardly been a memorable one so far, with the England international having made just nine league starts since joining the club last summer.

And, with the summer acquisitions of Jordan Henderson, Charlie Adam and Stewart Downing, Cole will find opportunities at Liverpool even harder to come by this season.

The 29-year-old has been linked with transfer window moves to Queens Park Rangers and Tottenham and, with the deadline approaching, Cole may well leave Liverpool in the coming days.

But Dalglish has nothing but good things to say about Cole, who he says has been 'fantastic' since the Scot took the helm in January.

"I think it's been fair to the boys for them to go and get football somewhere," said the Liverpool boss.


"They were not going to get it here. There was no way we were going to stand in their way or prevent them from playing football.

"He [Cole] is here and he will be treated exactly the same as everyone else.

"Joe's attitude to training and his commitment has been fantastic. He has been unbelievable, he has worked really hard and he just needs a little bit of luck.

"He will be treated the same as everybody else as regards playing matches. If he gets a bit of luck, he will be alright."
