Former Arsenal defender, Ashley Cole, has admitted that he laughs about the club’s lack of success since he left to Chelsea in 2006 in a controversial transfer.
Cole stated this in an interview with ITV’s panel show “Play to the Whistle” and insists that he had no regrets about the move.
“I had a great time [at Arsenal] , I missed the old players that were there but I moved on and won every trophy I could,” he said.
“I wouldn’t look back and say I regretted it, no.”
Arsenal have only won two FA Cups since he left.
Asked by comedian and Arsenal fan Romesh Ranganathan whether he took any pleasure from that, Cole said: “If I’m honest, yeah – I still think to this day, I laugh to myself.
“I had a lot of history there and I think the way I left was maybe a bit dodgy, but the lack of respect they showed me as well.
“Maybe I did things in the wrong way. But when I look back at it now I think there were a lot of parties I could blame.
“But it’s gone now, and it’s 10 years down the line.”
