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.
