When Steven Gerrard Told Us Joe Cole Was Better Than Messi

SO, how did the season go for Liverpool’s Lionel Messi? Who he? Steven Gerrard told us on August 10, 2010?

“[Lionel] Messi can do some amazing things, but anything he can do Joe can do as well, if not better. He used to shock us in training by doing footy tricks with a golf ball that most players can’t even do with a football.

“I really fancy Joe for the [player of the year] award this season.”

How’s Barcelona’s Joe Cole getting along..?

    A little harsh on poor Cole i think lol! Joe is a good player and believe he has probably more tricks in his locker than Ronaldo (MKII) and Messi put together but we all know football is more than freestyle skills!!

    Has Stevie ever seen Messi play? The tricks Joe can do with a golf ball Messi can do with Stevie’s balls.
