Ashley Cole Confirms No Retirement Plans As of Now
Ashley Cole has confirmed that he has no plans of retirement as of yet, and that he is only focusing on winning more games and trophies in his career.
The LA Galaxy defender is in the twilight of his career. After failing to secure a spot at Roma, he moved to LA Galaxy where he has been a regular first-team player. After having won so many trophies in his career including the Champions League, the defender has been struggling for form in recent times. He has joined LA Galaxy in a difficult period of time, as the club has been unable to reclaim the former glory days.
LA Galaxy enjoyed a lot of success during the time of David Beckham and Bruce Arena, but new manager Curt Onalfo has been unable to bring the same kind of success to the club this season.
Even then, Ashley Cole is determined that the club will once again start to win major honours and he has stated that winning the MLS Cup will complete his career. There have been suggestions that the former Arsenal and Chelsea defender will be going into a career in punditry rather than management. After being injured in pre-season, Cole recently returned to the first-team action but his performances have not been good so far.
"This season is a new season and the ambition is still there to win something here. Still have got a long way to go, but that's still in my mind. Whether I stay next year or this is my last year, who knows? I don't think it's completely past me because I'm 36 years of age. I don't quite heal as quick as before. I feel good now. I had a good preseason under me. I wasn't probably as fit as I normally am, but again that's age,” said Cole.
