West Ham fans on Twitter keen to see Joe Cole return to the club in retirement

West Ham fans on Twitter keen to see Joe Cole return to the club in retirement

Joe Cole announced his retirement from football yesterday and the tributes were gushing in from his ex-teammates and ex-clubs. West Ham United, in particular, paid a fitting tribute to their ex-academy man and a lot of the supporters commented how they’d love to see him return as a coach.

Joe Cole turned out for a large number of clubs in his career, however he will hold West Ham close to his heart seeing as how he came through the ranks at Upton Park on his way to making a huge career for himself. The 37-year-old finished his career off at Tampa Bay Rowdies in the second division of United States football, retiring as a three-time Premier League and three-time FA Cup winner.

The 56-cap former England man turned out for Chelsea, Liverpool, Aston Villa, Coventry and obviously The Hammers in his playing career and now, as he looks to pursue a career in coaching the perfect place for him to go would be The London Stadium, where a lot has changed since he made his West Ham bow as a player back in July 2014. Manuel Pellegrini would no-doubt make room for Cole on his coaching staff and he’d be welcomed with open arms by the fans.

The Hammers would love to see a Joe Cole return and will be relying on their club to make it happen.
