Joe Cole Loan to Lille Confirmed

joe cole lille signing loan

My fellow Liverpool followers, our long national nightmare is over. Joe Cole has completed a loan deal with French club Lille that will see him head to the League 1 side for the coming season. Liverpool will, unfortunately, pay roughly 60% of his bloated salary over the coming year, a fact that shows Cole's priorities lie in receiving a pay day more than in receiving consistent first team football. But at least now, if he continues not receiving first team football, somebody else will be paying 40% of his bloated salary while he sits around looking winded.

But Joe Cole is totally a winner, totally cares about playing football, and totally intends on making the French champions winners at something or other now that he's there but with his old club still paying 60% of his salary because he cares about playing football and not money:

I am a winner. It did not work at Liverpool for many reasons and it hurt me…

I like the continental football and it's exciting for me. I love challenges. It's a different playing style and I hope that people in England will watch me play and get more interested in French football!

No word on whether or not he likes the rap music. Meanwhile, Evian have also confirmed that they have signed Christian Poulsen after Liverpool made him available for free to any club willing to pay his wages.
