The Cole to Chelsea saga continues, with Cole’s recent statement of that he moved to Chelsea for a new challenge and to win trophies:
“I know full well that I’m not a greedy person. I’ve not come here for money,” said the 25-year-old England left-back. “I’ve come here because I want to win things and I have a good chance of winning things at Chelsea.”
But in his new book, name My Defense, he contradicts himself:
The England defender wanted Â£60,000 a week but says the Gunners board were only prepared to offer him Â£55,000.
“The club made Thierry feel wanted and special, wooing him, wining and dining him, speaking in public about how much they wanted him to stay, going on a deliberate charm offensive,” stated Cole. “But me? I didn’t have one dinner, one meeting or one phone call from anyone.
Boo-fucking-hoo, maybe they didn’t want to wine and dine you after the Chelseagate scandal, why should they? This just goes further to show that his primary interest was money and notoriety, rather than playing football. This has just been bad PR for Chelsea and Cole ever since the scandal.
