Ashley Cole hints at Chelsea exit, hates ‘England and its people’

June 30th, 2010

(GSM) – Ashley Cole has admitted he might be forced abroad and leave Chelsea this summer.

The England fullback has been linked with Real Madrid and Cole admits media intrusion is driving him mad.

“I always try my hardest for England and Chelsea but the intrusion and pressure I feel is making my life hell,” he said.

The comments come as the Daily Mail revealed a rant by Cole before the World Cup about England and its ‘people’ via his mobile phone.

I hate the English people: Ashley Cole in foul-mouthed rant days before the World Cup

Ashley Cole launched a foul-mouthed rant about England and its ‘people’ days before flying out to the World Cup to play football for his country.

The message – which read ‘I hate England and the f***ing people – was sent to friends from the Chelsea defender’s Blackberry shortly before he boarded a flight to England’s pre-World Cup training camp in Austria.

The 29-year-old posted it as his status message – alongside a picture of him sunbathing topless – allowing all those designated as his friends to see it.

Cole said: ‘I always try my hardest for England and Chelsea but the intrusion and pressure I feel is making my life hell.’

But disappointed fans, particularly those who paid thousands to fly to South Africa to watch England’s matches, are unlikely to be impressed by his latest comments.

Cole already raised the ire of supporters after he was pictured laughing and joking with teammate Ledley King just hours after England’s dismal 4-1 defeat to Germany.

This, coupled with his Blackberry rant, is likely to exacerbate the love-hate relationship Cole has experienced with England in recent years – which is also due to his infidelities while married to the nation’s sweetheart Cheryl Cole.

The X Factor judge split with the footballer after he admitted being unfaithful.

His affair with hairdresser Aimee Walton in 2008 and the more recent revelations he had sent dozens of suggestive texts and photos to numerous women did little to endear him to the English public.

He is now dating Cheryl-lookalike Sarah Purnell, a lapdancer, who revealed yesterday he had been in touch with her every day during the World Cup.

The 23-year-old from Birmingham told how she first met Cole at a London nightclub on May 2 – and slept with him that same evening after he wooed her with a McDonald’s takeway. That was just three weeks before Mrs Cole filed for divorce.

Cole’s popularity was already on the wane after he left Arsenal for Chelsea in 2006 – a move many fans considered as an act of betrayal.

In an autobiography released weeks after the move to Chelsea Cole further aggravated matters by complaining that Arsenal’s offer of £55,000 a week in a new contract was ‘taking the p***’.

He went to Chelsea for a weekly wage of more than £90,000.
