Ashley Cole happy with LA Galaxy
Ashley Cole claims that he is enjoying life at LA Galaxy after having secured a move to the MLS outfit for the 2016 season.
The former Chelsea and Arsenal defender was regarded as most of finest during his peak. A winner of every conceivable title in English football, Cole has also won the Champions League during his time at Chelsea. His spell with Italian outfit, though, can be forgotten almost quickly as it did not help him get anywhere in the game. Cole spent most of his time unused by Rudi Garcia. This led to an early termination of his contract by mutual consent.
Since then, Cole secure a move to the MLS where a number of Premier League names have joined in the last six months. Cole has been playing alongside his former international teammate Steven Gerrard, while striker Robbie Keane is also not a stranger. Due to these reasons, Cole has found it easy to settle almost immediately and has been a regular for the club. Cole admitted that the style of play in the MLS was vastly different that in the Premier League, but he does not have any reasons to complain because he is enjoying his maximum.
Cole claimed that he spoke with former Premier League stars like Gerrard and Keane before coming to the United States."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. 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,” said the former Chelsea defender.
