Lille forward Moussa Sow has said that Liverpool's Joe Cole has been a success during his loan spell with the French club.
Cole, who has made 11 league appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit since his arrival in the summer, has two goals and two assists to his name this season. Meanwhile, manager Rudi Garcia has suggested that the club could be interested in making the move permanent.
"He's a great pro," Sow told RMC Sports. "Along with [David] Rozenhal, he is the first in the locker room in the morning.
"He is always there ready, he is very involved and highly motivated, even when he's not playing. It's a surprise to see him like that.
"It was a gamble for the club, and so far it's been successful."
Lille are currently in third place in Ligue 1, five points behind leaders Montpellier.
