Joe Cole seeks talks


Recommended Posts

Joe Cole is expected to seek talks with the Chelsea manager, Luiz Felipe Scolari, after being taken off against Southend United - the 12th club match in a row in which the England midfielder has been substituted.

Cole was taken off in the 84th minute on Saturday with Chelsea leading 1-0 and went down the tunnel without shaking hands with Scolari or acknowledging his manager.

The 27-year-old is understood to want to discuss his predicament with Scolari. Although he is regularly starting matches for Chelsea, he is becoming wearily accustomed to being taken off, at times because of injury, and twice in a run which stretches back to late September he has been substituted at half-time.

Scolari, who has been the subject of criticism recently from the striker Didier Drogba, claimed on Friday that all his players 'love him'.

Actually I'm getting sick of Joe Cole getting substituted. It doesn't seem to relate how well he's playing, it's just that apparently he's an easy player to substitute without feeling guilty or something.

Quite a few times he's been the best player on the park by a mile and still gets subbed. Its getting beyond a joke. If he wants to bring someone like Kalou on then take off the likes of Deco and move JC back to fill his role on the pitch. That way you still have the threat of Cole and the ineffectiveness of Deco is no longer a problem.
