The transfer window gives many players opportunities to move around and play in new places, but if Liverpool was smart, they would keep midfielder Joe Cole in his place.
The former player has been the subject of possible movement, but the club's future is best without bringing back the fading star.
According to Skysports.com, Cole feels he has unfinished business with Liverpool after the club loaned him out to Lille last year.
While fans should appreciate the promise and determination of Cole, there is just no need for him to return to Liverpool.
Cole joined Liverpool on a four-year contract that paid him roughly £90,000 a week as the club hoped to find some significant signings to keep the team in contention according to Guardian.com.
During the 2010-11 season, Cole scored just three goals, which prompted the club to move him to Lille.
So why would they even bother bringing him back now?
The team already has a plethora of midfielders, making it somewhat a waste of space to add more to the depth at that position.
Cole has done decent at Lille, which is much better than what came of him at Liverpool, but there is no reason the team should be looking to give the 30-year-old a shot at redemption.
He had six goals this past season, which is why some teams may be interested in acquiring him during this transfer window.
There is just no telling though if he would find similar success in a resurgence at Liverpool, especially after how poorly he did the last time around.
Liverpool gave Cole his shot, and he didn't fulfill expectations. Better to just look at it as a mistake and move on than to give him another shot that would take away playing time from other players.
