'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Cole Praise For Roeder

Joe Cole has sent a special message of thanks to Glenn Roeder after the England midfielder insisted the Newcastle United manager had been the biggest positive influence on his rapidly rising career.

Cole: 'No disrespect to anybody else but I don't listen to fans, the media, my friends. I listen to the people like Jose (Mourinho), Glenn Roeder, Sven-Göran Eriksson, the people that I feel I can learn from. In football everybody has an opinion and you can't please all of them. I feel I have to look at players like David Beckham, (Marcel) Desailly, (Juan Sebastien) Veron, (Paolo) Di Canio, people I tried to learn from and not listen to anything else other people would say about me.

'But it isn't a player who has had the biggest impact on my career. Glenn Roeder is the geezer who has had the most influence on me as a professional. Yes, he's been the biggest influence in the professional stage of my career.

'He helped me through the difficult early years of my career and I will always be thankful to him for that.'
