Larnell James Cole (born 9 March 1993) is an English footballer who plays as a midfielder for Fulham. Born in Manchester, Cole began his career with Manchester United before joining Fulham in January 2014.

Career[edit]

Manchester United[edit]

Cole arrived as a school boy at Manchester United before coming through the academy. A notable game came in 2011 when he scored a hat-trick against rivals Manchester City in a 6–1 victory in the Premier Academy League.[3] He then went on to make an impact in the club's run to the FA Youth Cup final, scoring a penalty and setting up team-mate Ravel Morrison on the way to a 3–2 comeback against Liverpool in the quarter final.[4]

Cole made his senior debut for Manchester United in the League Cup on 20 September 2011, coming as a substitute in the 77th minute in United's third round victory over rivals Leeds United.[5]

On 14 May 2013, Cole scored a hat-trick, including two penalties, against rivals Liverpool in the semi-final of the Under-21 Premier League as Manchester United won 3–0.[citation needed]

On 20 May 2013, Cole scored two goals against Tottenham Hotspur in the U21 finals at Old Trafford as Manchester United won 3–2.[6]

Fulham[edit]

On 31 January 2014, Cole joined Fulham for an undisclosed fee, along with Manchester United team-mate Ryan Tunnicliffe, joining up with former Manchester United coach René Meulensteen.[7] He made his debut on 9 February in a 2–2 draw against his former club, coming on as an 80th-minute substitute for William Kvist.[8]

Milton Keynes Dons (loan)[edit]

Following Meulensteen's sacking as Fulham manager, Cole and Tunnicliffe were deemed surplus to requirements by Meulensteen's replacement, Felix Magath.[9] On 25 February 2014, Cole joined League One side Milton Keynes Dons on loan until the end of the 2013–14 season.[10]

International career[edit]

Cole was called up for the England Under-19 friendly against the Netherlands in August 2011 and went on to make his debut as a substitute in the 0–0 draw on 1 September 2011.[11] On 28 May 2013, he was named in manager Peter Taylor's 21-man squad for the 2013 FIFA U-20 World Cup.[12] He made his debut on 16 June, in a 3–0 win in a warm-up game against Uruguay.[13]
