Ashley Cole still does not regret moving to Chelsea from Arsenal

Ashley Cole

Former England left-back Ashley Cole left his boyhood club Arsenal and joined Chelsea in 2006. Ashley states that he has laughed at the Gunners’ struggles ever since.

Cole received a lot of hate from Arsenal fans and was nicknamed “Cashley” by some of the supporters for joining Chelsea for a salary £90,000 a week, having turned down Arsenal’s £55,000-a-week deal offer.

‘I had a great time there, I missed the old players that were there but I moved on and won every trophy I could,’ he said on “Play to the Whistle” ‘I wouldn’t look back and say I regretted it, no.’

Talking about the difference in titles both clubs won over the last decade, Ashley said this: ‘If I’m honest, yeah – I still think to this day. I laugh to myself,’ he said.
