Cristiano Ronaldo Rates Ashley Cole as the Best Left Back

Real Madrid superstar Cristiano Ronaldo has named Ashley Cole as the toughest opponent he has faced in his career.

It comes as a major praise for the former England international, who is now approaching the end of his career. Regarded as one of the world’s greatest left backs of the last couple of decades,Cole seemed like an Arsenal player through and through before his shock move to Chelsea in 2006. However, this enabled him to experience some of the biggest successes in world football after he lifted the FA Cup numerous times and the Champions League title too.


Former Chelsea defender Ashley Cole has been named among the best Three Lions players

Cole holds the record for most capped English full back, and his record of playing in three World Cups and two European Championships sets him apart from others. However, he holds the record for the player with most caps without goals by an outfield player.
Cole, admittedly, has never really been a fans’ favourite in an England shirt despite coaches and pundits easily naming him as England’s best left back in history.

Cole expects Chelsea to improve

Ashley Cole believes that Antonio Conte is the right man to improve Chelsea.

The London team has been enjoying a poor run in recent weeks, but Ashley Cole believes that the side will improve soon. He said that the Italian manager would need time to improve the team.

Cole wants to return to Chelsea

Former Chelsea player Ashley Cole said that he wants to go back to Chelsea as a scout when his playing career is over.

This will cause an uproar among Arsenal fans who were expecting at least the player to move to another club rather than to their fierce rivals again. They are still disappointed by the way Cole left them for Chelsea and will not really appreciate the fact that he will be returning to Chelsea.

Cole wants Wenger as England boss

Former Arsenal player Ashley Cole has stated that Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger should be the next England manager.

The player who is currently playing for MLS club LA Galaxy says that Arsene Wenger will be the best manager for England. Indeed the FA is now looking for a replacement for Roy Hodgson, who has resigned from his post following the poor campaign at the Euros.

Ashley Cole said that the question now for the FA would be to decide whether to go for an England manager or a foreign one. For him, the best decision will be to go for Arsene Wenger. Cole believes that the French manager knows how to manage young players, has a good knowledge of football and also know how to win games. For him, this is the best candidate at the moment for the England team.

This led to an early termination of his contract by mutual consent.
