“If you have still got the attributes at that age that you france jersey 2014 had when you were 16 or 17 starting out, you will not go far wrong.

“He can make things happen. If he can perform the way I know he can then we have got a really good player on our hands.”

Lambert says he was keen to snap up Cole as soon as he found out that the midfielder had become available, as he believes the former Chelsea man’s experience will be hugely beneficial.

“That one intrigued me, when I noticed all of it I thought ‘I am going to try and see if we can do something’,’’ he added.

“He has won things at the highest level, played in masses of big games, massive England games and knows what it’s like to win things.

Louis van Gaal
The experienced coach will take charge at Old Trafford after the completion of the third place play-off against hosts Brazil on Saturday but has already seen his new employers bring in Ander Herrera and mexico jersey 2014 Luke germany 2014 world cup jersey Shaw.

There are suggestions that 30-year-old former Inter Milan playmaker Sneijder could be the next player to be bound for Old Trafford as United look to improve their attacking options.

And while Galatasaray do not want to see him move on, club president Unal Aysal has revealed that a significant bid would allow Sneijder to depart.

Aysal is quoted as saying by The Sun: “Sneijder is a good player. We want to keep him at Galatasaray.

“If we receive an offer of 20million euros we do not have the luxury of saying no. That is stipulated in the contract.

“All I can say is that if any club pays us €20million and he wants to go then we can’t force him to stay – it’s written in his contract.”

4  Forum / Other Upcoming Events / Cups and Olympics, where he takes photographs mainly to maintain the family trad on: July 10, 2014, 09:16:40 pm
The 50-year-old Tunisian photographer can be easily spotted in a blazer, trousers and sombrero hat decorated with countless sporting pins, badges, keyrings and patches.
He has attracted plenty of attention from supporters, the public and fellow journalists alike, with a post about him on Twitter by BBC presenter Dan Walker   brazil jersey 2014 retweeted almost 300 times.
"Great game," Walker wrote during Germany's last-16 victory over Algeria, during which Manoubi appeared on television when the camera cut to one of the assistant referees.
"But the fella in the background was definitely man of the match #Haterazzi."

Bechir Manoubi worked at 12 Olympic Games and 10 World Cups over a period of 45 years
This is the third World Cup that Manoubi has covered and he follows in the footsteps of his father Bechir, who worked at 12 Olympic Games and 10 World Cups over a period of 45 years.
"My father's first major event as a freelance photographer was the 1960 Olympics in Rome and then the 1966 World Cup in England, " Hosni told BBC Sport. "He didn't miss any Olympics or World Cup before he died in 2005."
During his 45-year photography career, Bechir met famous sporting superstars including Muhammad Ali, who he photographed during three fights.
"He was very famous in Africa and won many awards, so it was my duty to maintain his legacy, starting with the 2006 Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt and the World Cup in Germany," added Hosni.
"At home we now have 40kg of pins - I think it would be too heavy for me to wear them all!"
The sombrero became part of Bechir's outfit during the 1968 Olympics in Mexico and although Hosni's hat is a replica, the tradition looks set to continue for the foreseeable future.
"This is my mission and I'm very proud. I picked it up from my father and after me I have two sons who will be freelance photographers too. Omar is 20 and Yasin 11. We will create history."
Back home, Hosni is a photographer who earns money from working at functions, weddings, birthdays and parties.
He uses this money to fund his trips to World Cups and Olympics, where he takes photographs mainly to maintain the family tradition of which he is so proud.
Selling his photographs back home is not easy, as the newspapers mainly use those supplied by Fifa and the big agencies. Over the years, though, many photos taken by Hosni and his father have appeared in local and national Tunisian newspapers.
One of two snappers banned from the 2012 Africa Cup  of Nations for edging on to the pitch, Hosni not surprisingly sees his profession as "less of a job, more of a passion", but Brazil has not holland world cup jersey 2014 been easy.

During his 45-year photography career, Bechir met famous sporting superstars including Muhammad Ali
He arrived in Sao Paulo on 11 June and covered the opening World Cup game between Brazil and Croatia before travelling to Belo Horizonte, Salvador, Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre to photograph other group matches.
He also covered the semi-final between Netherlands and Argentina on Wednesday and after the final on Sunday he returns to Sao Paulo for his flight back to the family home in Tunis.
But whereas most people have been navigating this enormous country by aeroplane, the self-employed Hosni could not afford it and has instead completed every leg of his journey by bus.

Bechir's exploits were featured in several national and international newspapers across the world
He says he has spent more than 60 hours on the road so far, with more still to come and - by the end - an estimated distance of 4,432 miles will have been covered at an average of 123 miles per day.
Sleep has been taken on the busses, in the terminals and occasionally at hotels, with the £1,748 (3,000 US dollars) spending money Hosni brought with him now down to its last couple of hundred.
"I'm very happy here and at every stadium people are pleased to see me, which is great," he explained. "But it's hard with the distances. It's taken two or three days to get to some places.
"I won't be able to cover as many competitions as my father because it will be too expensive and I'm already very tired. Maybe 2014 World Cup jerseys another two World Cups and then Omar can take over.
He added: "My mother was not interested in Argentina jersey 2014 what my father was doing, she just looked after the house. My wife doesn't like photography either, she asks me: 'Why do you do this? You spend too much money at these things.'
"But it's my passion, it's what I do. I take photographs and I collect pins."
