“Of course, you talk about Haaland, what quality he has but I’m happy with Werner thank you.”
Cole has previously called Werner “underrated”, saying earlier this month: “I really think he’s underrated. Yes he’s missed some big chances and opportunities.
“As a coach, as a manager, you always look to say ‘is he in the right spots, is he in the right positions to strike and convert them?’
“But I think the way [Thomas] Tuchel sets up and the way he wants them to play through the lines, combined with the diagonal passes, he’s pivotal in that role, running into the space and running into areas where Mason [Mount] can pick the ball up.”
