Ashley Cole should not have decided to stat away from Book
The Arsenal fans believe that Ashley Cole should not have decided to stay away from the book which was released by the club the previous year.
That book was named ‘Invincibles’. It was about that glorious 2003-04 Season of the Gunners during which they did not see a single defeat on their way to the Premier League trophy.
Cole was one of the heroes for Arsenal in that season. He regularly showed up in the left side of defence and did an incredible job for Arsene Wenger, the manager.
So, for him to contribute to that book was important, but, the 35-year old Englishman, who is playing his Football in Italy now, did not take that much interest in it.
Cole’s past association with the rival club Chelsea might have been the reason why he did not feature.
Cole is one of the rarest of players who has played for both the top London clubs in his career i.e. Arsenal and Chelsea.
The defender might have feared that his appearance there in that book would result in his Chelsea fans lashing out at him.
On a social networking site last week, Cole tried to hint that he did not want any of his fans to be disappointed and thus, he did not get into it.
In the words of Cole, “I have been getting questioned about my absence from the Arsenal book. It was my personal decision which I made keeping my fans in mind.”
“But, I would definitely mention that I always cherish the moments I spent with the Gunners. There were some really awesome guys over there during my time and it was fun being amongst them.”
Cole played 156 Premier League matches for Arsenal between 1998 and 2006.
