Ashley Cole doing well with LA Galaxy

The former Arsenal and Chelsea left-back has impressed pundits with his performance in the Major League Soccer. Ever since coming to the States, he has been putting in some wonderful performance and has demonstrated why he was considered at some point in his career as the best left back in the world.

He made his debut in the MLS in March 2016 in a match against DC United which LA Galaxy won by 4-1. There were also other former Premier League stars such as Robbie Keane and Steven Gerrard playing in the match.

Bruce Arena believes that the signing of former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is a gamble

LA Galaxy manager Bruce Arena believes that the signing of former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole is a gamble, but one that needs to be taken by any manager. Cole is the latest English name to join a MLS outfit.

The North American league recently saw the influx of players like Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard in addition to other Premier League names like Didier Drogba. After having spent the last 18 months at Italian outfit Roma, Cole has decided to take the route of many top players towards the end of their careers. The MLS is fast becoming a favourite retirement spot for the top players.

Aston Villa have confirmed that they are interested

He was originally expected to join the MLS in order to enjoy some few years before retirement. The move to Roma, though, has not helped his career since he has been spending most of the time on the bench. Even though he is 35 years old,Cole does seem to think that he has time left at the top level.

Jermain Defoe reckons he should not be kept out of the national team

Jermain Defoe reckons he should not be kept out of the national team just because of the fact that he has crossed his 30 and is no longer young.

According to the striker, its fitness and not the age which should be taken into account when the manager sits to pick the players.

Defoe has been quite productive for the Black Cats of late finding the net as many as 5 times with the season just about two-week old.

The veteran was overlooked last year when Roy Hodgson named his squad for World Cup and that had left him deeply gutted. It had come to him as an absolute shock.

Ashley Cole’s experiment with Italian football seems to be good

Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole’s experiment with Italian football seems to be coming to a premature end after being left out of the Roma first-team squad for the opening game of the campaign.

The Italian Serie A resumes this weekend with Roma taking on Hellas Verona, but Cole will not be part of the team named by Rudi Garcia as he has been left out of the squad entirely. Garcia has explained that the decision to leave out the former England international is something that was taken by the club and that it was not a personal decision.

Ryan Bertrand says that he is looking to follow in the footsteps of Ashley Cole

Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand says that he is looking to follow in the footsteps of Ashley Cole.

The former Chelsea defender was an understudy to Cole during his time at Stamford Bridge. Even though Bertrand was part of the Champions League final in 2012, he never was considered as a regular first choice at Chelsea. This led to his permanent move to Southampton last summer. The benefits of regular football have been immensely helping him, as Bertrand was part of the defence that conceded the second least amount of goals in the league last season.

Ashley Cole should not have decided to stat away from Book

The Arsenal fans believe that Ashley Cole should not have decided to stay away from the book which was released by the club the previous year.

That book was named ‘Invincibles’. It was about that glorious 2003-04 Season of the Gunners during which they did not see a single defeat on their way to the Premier League trophy.

Cole was one of the heroes for Arsenal in that season. He regularly showed up in the left side of defence and did an incredible job for Arsene Wenger, the manager.

Could Ashley Cole leave Roma?

Leaving Chelsea after 8 wonderful years filled with success left Ashley Cole searching for a new club in what became the most important summer of his career to date.

The 34-year-old was tipped to seek a new adventure by moving to the MLS, but Rudi Garcia pounced upon the availability of a top quality left-back who still has a lot to offer to bring him to Roma. It represented an excellent move for Cole, who gained the opportunity to end his illustrious career on a high through winning more major honours.
