Ashley Cole will NOT be leaving Roma to join Crystal Palace according to his agent. The left-back had been linked with a shock return to the Premier League and to Palace but the defender’s agent has slammed these reports as “disgraceful.”
These rumours have come about because of the fact Roma’s coach Rudi Garcia has recently left Cole out of his squad, instead preferring to play Jose Holebas, However, the England man’s agent, David Manasseh, has rubbished the claims that he will leave. He said:
“Ashley is loving life in Italy and in Rome. He has never been happier. Whoever has given this information out is a disgrace because all it does is give fans of a football club false hope.
“Ashley is concentrating on trying to win trophies in Italy and, in particular, Serie A this season. Nothing else.”
