Cole faces action from Blues

Published Add your comment

Ashley Cole is facing disciplinary action from both Chelsea and the Football Association over his foul-mouthed Twitter rant at the game's governing body.

Blues and England defender Cole called the FA a "bunch of t***s" on Friday after he was accused of "evolving" his statement supporting John Terry's defence against the charge he racially abused Anton Ferdinand. He looks likely to be hit with an FA charge over the outburst and Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo confirmed the left-back would also be punished by his club.

The Italian said: "We've got a social media policy at the club and there's going to be a disciplinary process - action - against the tweet and that's how I'll leave it."
