Man United signed Andy Cole from Newcastle United and is was his goal scoring abilities there that attracted ManU's attention. So it's good that he is eeping up the Newcastle connection. He was a team mate of Lee Cark for a time.
Andy is also an ambassador for the Reds and I saw him with Dwight Yorke, who also has that honour, in Thailand representing the club on it's tour there.

I'm not a huge football fan but I seemed to recall Andy Cole earning the nickname "The Goal Machine"?
Yes, Cole the Goal.
He has had his share of poor health recently after contacting a virus whilst an ambassador to Vietnam. After finally contacting a doctor his kidneys were only functioning at 7% of usual capacity. He was saved by a transplant from his nephew but has also had to overcome severe depression.
No amount of money you may have is of any use if you have health problems.
