Cole upbeat despite frustration

Joe Cole has no regrets over his move to Liverpool and remains determined to make his mark at Anfield.

The England midfielder has made little impact for the Reds after leaving Chelsea on a free transfer last summer. He now hopes to have turned the corner having recovered from a knee problem to make his first appearance since Kenny Dalglish took over as manager in last week's Europa League game at Sparta Prague.

Cole told "It's not gone how I would have liked, but that's life."

He added: "Things like that happen and you've just got to push on through the difficult times.

"I've had plenty of good times in my career and I've had my share of difficult times, and I'll always come through.

"I've enjoyed moving up here and living where I am. I haven't enjoyed the football because I haven't felt as though I have done myself justice or got myself right.

"I have been frustrated with the injuries, but that's all going to change.

"I'll just keep going, keep training hard and it will turn the corner sooner rather than later.

"I'm fired up, still positive and still got enough energy - I want to be a success at Liverpool and I want to be part of this club."
