We played in silence,’ says Andy Cole as he reveals he NEVER spoke to team-mate at Man Utd

ANDY COLE has revealed he used to play in silence with his former Manchester United teammate Dwight Yorke.

Cole made a shock move to the Red Devils in January 1995 from Newcastle.

And while the former striker had a well-known feud with then-teammate Teddy Sheringham.

The ex-England international opened up on how he never said a word to Yorke during a game.

The 52-year-old said on the Stick to Football podcast brought to you by Sky Bet: “I never spoke to Yorke on the pitch.”

Gary Neville then interrupted his ex-teammate and said: “What? I knew you were quiet but?”

Cole continued: “No, I never spoke to Yorke. I just look at Yorke.

“But sometimes too much information on a football pitch is too much.

“So basically me and Yorke played in silence. We just look at each other.”

And the lack of communication did not matter as the pair formed a prolific strike partnership.

Cole scored 121 goals during his eight years at the club while Yorke scored 65 during his four terms in Manchester.

Not to mention the countless silverware the duo picked up along the way.

Cole during his time at United won five Premier League titles including three consecutive wins alongside two FA Cups and a Champions League.

In 2001 he left the Red Devils for Blackburn and went on to play for the likes of Fulham, Manchester City, Portsmouth and Burnley.

Man Utd fans behind the team? I’m not so sure…

By Dave Kidd

THERE was much praise for the Manchester United away fans when they sang their hearts out until the end of the 4-0 humping by Crystal Palace.

Not least from Erik ten Hag, who claims their singing is an indication that supporters back him and his mid-table squad.

And on Sunday, United’s supporters were in good voice again — before the match in the Bishop Blaize pub, during the match on the Stretford End and after it on Manchester’s sweatbox trams during an almighty monsoon.

They sang songs about George Best, Eric Cantona, Wayne Rooney, Ryan Giggs, Park Ji-sung, Jaap Stam, Nemanja Vidic and — as Arsenal were in town — Robin van Persie, too.

But there wasn’t a single song about any current player.

And there were also self-deprecating renditions of ‘we’re f***ing s**t!’

Not quite the ringing endorsements that Ten Hag thought he’d heard.
