The former England defender announced the completion of a career

Cole produced his best football during and after Jose Mourinho's first reign at Chelsea

And he has now released a statement confirming his retirement, and also revealing that he intends to remain in football for the foreseeable future.

Former Chelsea playmaker and England global Joe Cole announced hos retirement from professional football on Tuesday, November 13.

Joe Cole was technically one of England's brighest stars, which led to Steven Gerrard comparing him to Messi when he joined Liverpool from Chelsea.

'Winning trophies at Chelsea was particularly special for me.

"Simply, to the managers, coaches, backroom staff and everyone who has helped me along the way: thank you". "A huge thank you to Joe, who gave me such great advice" - the words of Azar Sky Sports.

On the worldwide stage, Cole was regarded as a member of England's "golden generation" which included the likes of Frank Lampard, David Beckham, Steven Gerrard and Rio Ferdinand. During his time at Stamford Bridge between 2003-2010, Cole made 281 appearances for the club in all competitions, scoring 40 goals.

Cole made his debut in the Premier League at the age of 17 in the 1998-99 season in the "West ham".

Toyota revealed the first image of the new Corolla sedan
Toyota has released a teaser photo for the next-generation Corolla sedan, scheduled for an official unveiling later this week. Unsurprisingly, the Corolla sedan largely follows the 2019 hatchback's aggressive design.

Cole won every domestic honour during his time at Chelsea, contributing to the Blues' first championship in 50 years in 2004-05 under Jose Mourinho.

And at the last count, Cole has given his all to the handsome game after representing clubs like West Ham, Chelsea, Liverpool, Aston Villa and US-based Tampa Bay Rowdies. A season-long return to West Ham was followed by spells at Aston Villa, Coventry and then the Rowdies in Florida.

He added: "I've been incredibly fortunate to have played with some of the very best players of my era and even more fortunate to call a lot of them friends".

I assured that in London I will be able to regularly win trophies.

"I spoke to Joe Cole and what he said above all was that Chelsea was the right club for me", he said. "Those memories will live with me forever". I feel I can offer a lot as a coach.

'To lend my experience to help other young footballers achieve their dreams, just like I did, is a big passion of mine'.
