Ruddock in shock admission on tackle that left Cole with two broken legs



Neil Ruddock has lifted the lid on his horror tackle that left Andy Cole with two broken legs in a 1996 reserve match, admitting he “only meant to break one of his legs”.
The former Liverpool defender earned a reputation in the game for taking no prisoners in a career that saw him star for both Liverpool and Tottenham, as well as England.
And he has admitted that during his time at Liverpool, where he played from 1993 to 1998, facing Manchester United was one of his great pleasures.
?Basically, I loved kicking Andrew Cole,? Ruddock toldtalkSPORT.
?I know this is not big and it?s not clever, but in one tackle I did break both of his legs,? ?Razor? said in reference to the United versus Liverpool reserve match in 1996.
?I didn?t mean to break both of his legs if I?m honest,? Ruddock continued. ?I only meant to break one? it wasn?t even a free-kick, it was ?play on?. ?It was excellent because he let the ball run past him and I absolutely destroyed him. Again, I know it?s not big and it?s not clever, but it was great.?
When asked if there was any reason for disliking Cole, Ruddock replied: ?I?m great friends with Teddy Sheringham and if Teddy Sheringham didn?t like him, then I don?t like him.?
Colewas on the books of United from 1995 to 2001, having joined in a 7.2million switch from Newcastle United.
