Jack Whitehall trolls Ashley Cole on gameshow

Arsenal fans will never forgive Ashley Cole after he left the Gunners for their London rivals Chelsea in 2006.

Cole, in fairness, didn’t make things any easier for himself after he wrote in his book that Arsenal’s £55,000-a-week offer almost made him swerve off the road in shock because he felt his performances deserved more.

Since then, Arsenal fans have referred to Cole as “Cashley” amongst other, more insulting, nicknames. Subsequently, the left-back must have expected a bit of stick when he appeared on the popular Sky gameshow ‘A League of Their Own’, opposite Arsenal fan and comedian Jack Whitehall, last week.

“Yes, I am an Arsenal fan, but I am so excited to have this gentleman here,” Whitehall said. “Over 100 caps for England, a champion! I just want to say, it’s so great that you’re on the show, Cashley.”

Jamie Redknapp told Whitehall to show some respect to the left-back, who is poised to join LA Galaxy after leaving AS Roma this week, but the comedian ended up firing more shots at the former Chelsea star.

“Did I call him, Cashley?” Whitehall responded, trying his best to act innocent. “I’m so sorry! What about Traitorsley? Judas?”

Cole doesn't seem like such a bad guy

Cole saw the funny side - he’s heard it all before over the past decade and knew Whitehall meant no malice - and laughed it all off.

The 35-year-old doesn’t have the best reputation amongst fans of English football, but he tends to come across well in interviews.

Perhaps he’s not as bad as some people make out.
