Club career history

West Ham (England), Chelsea (England)




Joe Cole (born November 8, 1981) is an English international footballer who plays for Chelsea of the Premiership.

A product of the famed West Ham United youth system, Cole was long touted as the hottest prospect in English football (a position now generally regarded as being held by Manchester United forward Wayne Rooney). Playing in a mould similar to former England favourite Paul Gascoigne, he quickly progressed through the West Ham ranks before making his first-team debut at the age of 17. Whilst his sublime touch and dribbling prowess won him many plaudits (and several England caps), his career stagnated in his last few years at the club, especially after West Ham parted company with manager Harry Redknapp.

In 2003, Cole move to Chelsea as part of Roman Abramovich's revolution for a rumoured seven million, with a view to establishing himself in the England national team. However, due to the stiff competition for places at the club, he initially struggled to hold down a place in the team for both Chelsea and England under Claudio Ranieri. However, the arrival of new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho in 2004 has seen an improvement in Cole's form, and a starting place in the England team.

As of March 26, 2005, Cole has played 20 times for England, mostly as a substitute. He was a squad member at Euro 2004, but did not play.
