Ashley Cole went on a Twitter rant about “moaning” people who criticised his decision to join Roma.
The former Chelsea full-back is in America for a pre-season tour, which will see the Giallorossi play against Liverpool at Boston’s Fenway Park on Wednesday night.
“B4 I signed at Roma people on here killing me about playing there, saying it’s for the money and easy life style,” wrote Cole on his Twitter account this evening.
“I choose to play in a more demanding place and team and people still feel the need to moan.
“How about you just worry about ur team and I’ll worry about mine. I’m talking about the MLS by the way.”
It’s reported Cole took a significant pay cut in order to join Roma this summer.
