'Liverpool mean business' -Carragher

LIVERPOOL, July 20 – The capture of England midfielder Joe Cole shows Liverpool mean business, defender Jamie Carragher warned the club's Premier League rivals on Tuesday.Former Chelsea midfielder Cole agreed terms on a four-year contract on Monday and has flown to Liverpool’s Switzerland training camp for a medical.

Carragher believes the signing of his England team-mate Cole proves fears that Liverpool, with no Champions League action to look forward to, would struggle to attract top-quality signings, are unfounded.

"It’s great news and it is a message that Liverpool mean business," said the 32-year-old Carragher.

He added: "We have signed a top international player who has been really important for Chelsea.

"A lot of clubs wanted to sign him but it is a real coup that he has chosen to come here and you have got to give the manager and the board a pat on the back for convincing him to come here.

"Every supporter that I have spoken to is absolutely delighted and all the players are the same – it’s given everyone a boost, just at the right time.

"It has been a long summer and we have been in a transitional period but now the World Cup is out of the way, we can start to look forward again.

"The fact we have got him has given everyone a boost around the city. It’s good news again and, hopefully, there will be more to come. It’s the kind of signing that we needed to make."
