Ashley Cole in mess again after attacking Shearer on Twitter

User Rating: / 0

Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole has stirred up controversy once again on Twitter after lashing out at Alan Shearer over his comments calling for Cole’s omission from England’s squad for Friday's World Cup qualifier against San Marino, reported ESPN Soccernet.

The English defender fuelled a media frenzy on Friday as he posted an expletive-ridden message on social networking website Twitter, insisting that he had not lied at FA's hearing for John Terry’s racism row. The 31 year-old has already been reprimanded by Chelsea, who are fining the player for breach of the club’s social networking policy.

Shearer had said on Saturday following Cole’s tirade against FA, “I think the FA can put a big statement out here by actually not fining him but actually banning him on Friday against San Marino.”

Cole hit back in typical fashion, retweeting a tweet which said, “Alan Shearer says @TheRealAC3 needs to be banned for his comments. I want his opinion on bans for kicking Neil Lennon in the head. #GlassHouses.”

Cole’s comments were in relation to Shearer’s assault on Leicester City midfielder Neil Lennon which had sparked similar calls for ban from international games way back in 1998. The former Newcastle star was cleared by the FA of the charges of unprofessional conduct.

Shearer clarified his position, telling the Sun, “I gave my opinion and I stand by it. He can say what he wants but I'm not getting involved in that.”

Chelsea officials are likely to be infuriated at the player’s second controversial tweet within a matter of days. The FA have, meanwhile, charged Cole with misconduct for his earlier tweet and the player has till Thursday afternoon to respond to the charge.
