Ashley Cole in hot water over Twitter rant

Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole is in hot water over comments he posted on a popular social a networking site on Friday, October 5.

The 31-year-old unleashed a barrage of insults directed at the Football Association after the body’s regulatory commission accused the player of providing unreliable evidence in support of his team captain in the controversial John Terry affair.

Chelsea captain John Terry is accused of calling QPR centre-half Anton Ferdinand a “f*****g  black c**t” during a Premier League game in October last year. The Crown Prosecution Service subsequently charged Terry with using racist language.

In July this year, the English Football Association charged Terry with “abusive and/or insulting words and/or behaviour”, which “included a reference to the ethnic origin and/or colour and/or race of Ferdinand”.

The publication of the ruling of the FA’s full regulatory commission following the disciplinary hearing, which Ashley Cole attended late September, is no doubt what triggered the defender’s Twitter rant.

Ashley Cole is now facing disciplinary action of his own for branding the FA a “bunch of t***s”, despite rapidly deleting the offensive tweet and apologising via his solicitor.

The player is set to be dropped from Friday’s World Cup qualifier against San Marino, and is expected to be slapped with a disrepute charge and a heavy fine.
