Cole going nowhere

Monday, August 2, 2010

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has been told by Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti he will not be leaving Chelsea this summer. Cole has been heavily linked with a transfer to Real Madrid, with Cole not hiding the face that he wouldn't mind working with Jose Mourinho again.

However, it doesn't look like he will get the chance to reunite with his old boss, not yet anyway. Carlo Ancelotti has denied any speculation that Cole will leave the club, stating that "Everyone can forget the idea he will leave this club.''

Cole is currently contracted to Chelsea until 2013 and makes around £100,000 pound a week, making him probably one of the highest paid left-backs in the World.

"It is only normal that Mourinho has a good relationship with Ashley. But I'm not interested in the relationship any of my players have with other coaches. Cole is staying."

There is no doubt that Cole is one, if not the, best left-backs in the World. However, with his talent comes controversy. He did not make a good impression in his last few month at Arsenal, clearly stating his intent and denying any of his teammates or even his manager an invite to his wedding. Since then the marriage has ended, and as we all know Cole was a regular feature in newspaper headlines, and issue which severely affected his form.
