Didi Hamann told talkSPORT yesterday that his former club Liverpool should do everything in their power to secure Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole on a free transfer.
The 33-year-old’s contract expires this summer, and he hasn’t been selected for England’s World Cuo squad after losing his place in the Chelsea side to Cesar Azpilicueta.
Hamann though, believes the left-back could still perform at a high level for Liverpool for at least a year, and the transfer would make perfect sense considering the Reds badly need to fix the problem position.
“Cole hasn’t played a lot of football this season but I watched him against Liverpool and against Atletico Madrid and he was absolutely outstanding,” the German said on the Colin Murray show.
“The guy has still got it. If I was Liverpool or Tottenham I would do my utmost to get him for a year or two because he has that left in him and he’s still a top, top player.”
