Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole believes Reds captain Steven Gerrard deserves to add 'Premier League champion' to his list of achievements at Anfield.
The former Chelsea player joined the Reds this summer on a free transfer after constant speculation linking him with moves to Arsenal and Tottenham.
The 28-year-old, who scored his first goal for the Reds during a 4-1 win against Steaua Bucharest in the Europa League this week, believes that Gerrard excels in his role for Liverpool.
"He's a tremendous player. I've known Steven since I was 17 or 18 and I obviously trained and played with him for England for 10 years so I know what he's all about, but when you see him in a Liverpool shirt he's even better,” Cole told talkSPORT.
"He's a fantastic player and if he plays well the team plays well and it's up to me now to assist him and try and help the club move on. A player like him deserves to win the Championship, I know that's what he wants over the next four to five years at the club.”
Liverpool go head to head with rivals Manchester United on Sunday, and Cole is expected to return to the side at Old Trafford after serving a three match ban after his sending off against Arsenal.
"All the lads here have got belief in what the manager wants us to do and the new signings have looked good. It's a re-build for us but we're doing alright, and we just need to keep improving slowly and gradually."
