So, it would appear that Ashley Cole hasn’t taken the FA’s findings over his evidence in the John Terry case particularly gracefully…
Cole was referring to the FA’s verdict that he ‘modified’ some of the evidence he gave in Terry’s defence to fit the case presented by Chelsea (adding the word ‘black’ into a statement if we’re reading correctly) – the FA independent report suggesting that there were discrepancies in the evidence originally provided by Cole, compared to the statements he later provided in court.
Obviously he was acting impulsively, but it’s difficult to fathom just what he thought such an inflammatory tweet would accomplish. Sadly, we think we may be looking for logic, however splintered, where there is none.
We don’t fancy his chances in front of an FA panel after this.
