Say that again!? Ashley Cole
Football players aren’t renowned for being intelligent and we’re afraid this series isn’t going to do that reputation any good!
Today’s victim is Chelsea star Ashley Cole. His quote comes from a few years back while coming to the end of his time with Arsenal. Check this belter out…
“When I heard Jonathan Barnett (his agent) repeat the figure of £55k, I nearly swerved off the road. ‘He (former Arsenal Director David Dein) is taking the piss Jonathan!’ I yelled down the phone. I was so incensed. I was trembling with anger. I couldn’t believe what I’d heard.”
Yes, that’s right, £55k a week isn’t good enough for Mr Cole. How dare they?
