Ashley Cole Looking for Success with LA Galaxy to End on High
LA Galaxy are hoping for an unlikely push to the play-off places and it may finally reward Ashley Cole with some joy after having joined the club a few years ago. The 37-year-old has been with Galaxy since 2016 but he has not been able to enjoy any success with the MLS outfit. Even though he has been one of the best defenders in the MLS over the last two years, the lack of success has been down to Galaxy going through a terrible period on and off the pitch.
Ashley Cole remains as one of the successful left backs in the history of the game after having won numerous honours with Chelsea and Arsenal. “ He has won the Premier League on three occasions with the two clubs while his biggest success “ came in the form of the FA Cup after winning at a record seven times with the two clubs. He has also won the Champions League and the Europa League on the European front. It is highly likely thatCole is in the last year of his MLS career and he may very well hang up his boots at the end of the campaign. “ Galaxy president Chris Klein “recently claimed that Ashley Cole was incredibly motivated to join LA Galaxy that he even decided to take a massive pay cut to move from Roma.
“We were clear with him up front that we didn't have a Designated Player spot. We didn't have that money to commit to him. He [Cole] just said: 'Look, that's not my motivation. My motivation is to play the game I love. Just let me show you. Let me come to LA and I'll show you what I can do,” said Galaxy president Klein. Galaxy are just outside the play-off places with a strong possibility of getting into the top six.
