Five questions with Andy Cole

 
Constantly giving defenders a headache from the late 80s all the way till his retirement in 2008, former Manchester United striker Andy Cole is one of the most successful strikers to have graced the English Premier League.

Scoring over 200 goals in his career, Cole has the distinction of being one of the few players to have won every major trophy in the Premier League.
 
Singaporesports.sg’s reporter managed to meet him at the Singapore Cricket Club’s soccer sixes tournament and he took time out of his busy schedule to answer five questions for us.

If you were allowed to choose another occupation, what would it be?
I would be a professional boxer, the world heavyweight-boxing champion of the world. I’m a big boxing fan!

What have you been up to since your retirement from professional football?
Not too much to be honest, just travelling a lot, relaxing, just trying to enjoy my life to the fullest. I’ve also done abit of coaching but basically I’m just trying to enjoy my life.

Who inspired you to pick up football?
There wasn’t anyone really because growing up as a kid, I always wanted to play football. Also I think as a kid growing up in the United Kingdom, it is something you want to be (a footballer), so it wasn’t a case of me watching someone on television and wanting to be like him.

Which footballer if any, did you idolise when you were a kid?
Never had one and never had any. I’m my own man.

What words of advice do you have for our young footballers?
Like I always say to the kids back in the UK, you got to enjoy it as much as possible, but though enjoyment’s essential, you still have to work hard and to survive in this business you have to be prepared to take advice and listen to them as well.
