Joe Cole returned to West Ham United midway through the 2012/13 season, and in doing so made the move back to his first club.

West Ham TV caught up with the 31-year-old to talk us through his Hammers campaign.


How would you sum up the season?

JC - "It's been a good season for the Club - a nice, positive step forward for us. Now we need to keep working hard to keep that going."

What was your highlight of the campaign?

JC - "Probably the reception I got returning in the game against Manchester United. That was a brilliant day for me and my family. I can't thank the fans enough for that and hopefully I can keep scoring goals to repay them."

What was your worst moment of the season?

JC - "The injuries. I was on a great little run, with the momentum picking up, so the injuries are always frustrating for a footballer."

What was the funniest moment of the season for you?

JC - "That's a tough one on the spot. I think we've got a good group, we do have a laugh every day. Some of Mark Noble's tight trousers are quite funny."

What was your best performance this season?

JC - "My best performance was probably the Tottenham game, or the Manchester United game - one of those two."

Finally, Joe, what are your plans for the summer?

JC - "Just spending time with my family, my kids, then working hard to try to keep myself fit and nice and strong, so I can have a good pre-season."
