Despite only playing with the former Manchester United ace for just a few weeks, the youngster is delighted with his new team-mate.
Veron, who scored in the Blues' 2-1 win against Liverpool at the weekend, was the man of the match on his Premiership debut for the Stamford Bridge outfit.
"Veron is definitely the best player I have ever played with - better than anyone I can think of," said Cole.
"He did very, very well. He was a great player at Manchester United and I am sure he will be at Chelsea, too.
"He is just quality and he could end up helping the England midfield as well in a way - I certainly hope so."
Meanwhile, the former Red Devil has hinted Chelsea could be the last European side he plays for, before returning home.
"Perhaps at this stage of my career it's not a bit difficult for me to move, because adapting to another city with the family is more difficult," he said to The Star.
"I believe that this could be the last team I play for in Europe - then after I leave here I could return home to Argentina."
