Liverpool midfielder Joe Cole believes that the style of football Brendan Rodgers wishes to implement at Anfield will suit him.

Over the past two seasons, the creative midfielder has been castaway from the Merseyside club, spending the 2011-12 campaign on loan at Lille.

The England international has been involved in Rodgers' pre-season plans, however, and thinks that he can make an impact this season.

"Yeah, I think the system is good for me," Cole explained to "I [also] think it's going to be good for the team mainly. We've taken the ideas on board.

"It's a different style of play, it's a very 'un-British' style of play."

Cole featured in Liverpool's 0-0 draw with Tottenham at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore on Sunday and is eager to get the new season started after the team's tour of North America.

The Reds drew 1-1 with Toronto FC in Canada before suffering a 2-1 defeat at the hands of Roma in Boston.

"It's exciting to be back," he said. "We are really happy with the progress we've made on this tour with this team. We're going to keep going in the right direction."
