Cole Hopes Arsenal Fans 'Shut Up'

Cole Hopes Arsenal Fans 'Shut Up'

Ashley Cole has had another dig at Arsenal fans after winning his 4th FA Cup, while proclaiming he is 'right up there with Giggs.'

That's right Arsenal fans, the 'man' who bottled it when it came to playing his former club at their place has the front to come out with such comments.

Cole won 3 FA Cups while at Arsenal, scoring a penalty in his last 'Cup final apperance for the Gunners against Manchester United in 2005.

I think it's fair to say that Cole's only contribution to the game was to get booked for kicking the ball away once Didier Drogba had given Chelsea the lead.

Speaking after Chelsea's FA Cup triumph Cole said: "It feels extra special as I`ve had a lot of flak and hopefully it will shut people up.

"I only played for ten minutes but celebrated like I played the whole game. It`s my fourth one now, which is up there with people like Ryan Giggs, which is unbelievable. It means a little bit more to me personally and I`m very happy.

"There`s no need to say anything more and I`m just proud and happy to be here. Four days ago I couldn`t even walk. I`ve been struggling as I`ve got an operation on Tuesday, but the manager`s kept faith in me and put me on the bench.

'I knew I wasn`t going to start as I`ve not been training for three weeks. Just to get on was unbelievable and I`m just so proud to have the fourth medal in my pocket."


This says it all for me: 'I only played for 10 minutes but celebrated like I played the whole game.'

Maybe Cole was feeling upset because the Arsenal fans weren't signing his name as much as they were at the start of the season?

The genuine hate felt by some fans, myself included had began to diminish but this latest outburst is sure to infuriate many-a-fan.

All together now 'Ohhhhhh Ashley Cole, he's a....' I think you know the rest!
