‘I’ve not seen that’: Joe Cole shocked by £44m Liverpool player’s pace last night, he was ‘blistering’



Joe Cole exclaimed, “I’ve never seen that!” in response to a £44 million Liverpool player’s “blistering” speed last night.Joe Cole, a former player for Liverpool, was astounded by the Reds’ 4-0 victory over LASK last night.


For TNT Sports, Cole devoted the evening to analyzing Liverpool’s victory. A straightforward evening for Jurgen Klopp’s squad as Luis Diaz, Mohamed Salah, and Cody Gakpo each scored once, securing the points and advancing them to the top of their group.After the match, much was discussed, including Wataru Endo’s performance and Mohamed Salah’s alleged “poker face” regarding his future with Liverpool.


However, Gakpo appeared to be the one who captured Cole’s attention the most. The individual, who is 42 years old, stated that the Dutchman’s incredible speed left him in awe last night.


Cole exclaimed, “He was probing and getting into good positions, and what I like most about him is how at ease he is with the ball.””There he showcased a yard.” I was previously unaware of his extraordinary speed. He has just departed. Which is why I believe he possesses additional qualities, as I have yet to observe them. Since when have we been observing Cody Gakpo play? He has never before extended his legs in such a manner. “His countenance was blistering.”


Cole is stunned by Gakpo’s velocity.

Possibly due to the velocity of players such as Darwin Nunez, Diaz, and even Salah, Gakpo’s speed is occasionally disregarded.


Although he is in no way Adama Traore, the former captain of PSV Eindhoven possesses remarkable mobility on the field.Given his height, Gakpo’s apparent dexterity in terms of speed may be misleading. There are instances when the 24-year-old appears to be effortlessly traversing the pitch.


We are more impressed by his ability to run swiftly with the ball than by his pure speed. Not every player who can move quickly when not in possession can also move quickly when in possession. Gakpo is capable.The £44 million acquisition possesses a mental agility commensurate with his quickness of movement. On what frequency does he demonstrate anticipation in the penalty area, outrun opposing defenses, and score from a square ball across the six-yard box?Additionally, his mobility was crucial in creating the opportunity for Trent Alexander-Arnold to score on Sunday against Manchester City. That demonstrated prompt pondering.


The overall performance of Gakpo in recent months has generated widespread dissatisfaction. Given Diogo Jota’s injury, this presents the Netherlands international with a tremendous opportunity.


Fortunately, he got off to an excellent start to that by scoring two goals last night. Cole, who has recently been the subject of negative press, will not be the only individual Cody surprises during the upcoming period.
