Cole happy at LA Galaxy
There was a point in time when Ashley Cole was considered to be the best left-back in the world of football.
It was during the playing time that Cole spent with Chelsea from 2006-2014 where the English defender managed to stand out and help the Premier League in lifting a number of big titles such as: Premier League, Europa League, Champions League and FA Cup are just a few of the pieces of silverware that he sealed with Chelsea.
When Ashley Cole’s contract with Chelsea reached it’s end, he went off to join the Italian side AS Roma, although according to transferrumours.co.uk he could have gone to any one of 20 clubs across Europe who wanted him.
Unfortunatley, it turned out to be a fairly unpleasant period of time for Cole as he had to spend a significantly long period of time on the sidelines as a substitute player and Cole didn’t add any titles to his collection.
Following such an underwhelming time with Roma, Ashley Cole attempted to get his playing career back on track as he joined the MLS side LA Galaxy in January of 2016 and the English defender recently talked about how things have been going for him ever since making his move to LA Galaxy.
"I'm enjoying it. Of course, it's a little bit different to playing in the Premier League and in Italy but we have a good bunch of lads here and some familiar faces that I know so they've made it very easy to come into the squad and into the team. Every manager and every team has a different philosophy or a different way they want to play so of course it's a little bit different."
"I came here just to play football again. I didn't really have a great time in Rome so it was just for me to start enjoying my football again they've given me the chance to do that.’’ LA Galaxy’s Ashley Cole said.
At the age of 35, Ashley Cole is reaching the end of his playing career and all that he wants to do is spend it as enjoyable as he can by being an active player and helping out his club in winning titles.
