Ashley Cole, the most decorated footballer in FA Cup history retires after a two-decade-long career

Ashley Cole, Former England, Arsenal and Chelsea left-back has announced his retirement from playing football following a two-decade-long career.  

38-year-old Cole was out of contract at Derby County at the end of the 2018-19 season and says he is now focused on coaching. Cole said he is currently taking qualifications with a view to move into a coaching role.  

He made his professional debut for Arsenal in 1999 and went on to represent Crystal Palace on loan, Chelsea, Roma, LA Galaxy and Derby.

“After hard thinking, it was time to hang up my boots and look forward to my next chapter,” Cole told Sky Sports.

The London-born defender earned 107 caps for England and is the most decorated footballer in FA Cup history, having lifted the trophy seven times(with Arsenal in 2002, 2003 and 2005, and Chelsea in 2007, 2009, 2010 and 2012).  

He also won the Premier League twice with Arsenal – including the 2003-04 season in which the Gunners went unbeaten – and once with Chelsea after moving to Stamford Bridge in 2006.  Cole won the Champions League with Chelsea in 2011-12 and the Europa League the following season.  

After joining Derby County in January, he worked under the management of his former Chelsea team-mate Frank Lampard and helped the club to the Championship play-off final, where they were beaten by Aston Villa.  Total Ashley Cole PL record: 385 appearances, 15 goals, 31assists, 3 titles.

Aaliyah’s wax figure at Madam Tussauds was unveiled on Wednesday August 21, immortalizing one of her iconic looks.  Adam Morey, Studios Manager at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas revealed that the discussions on making an Aaliyah figure began over a year ago.

“It’s a message that hopefully reflects her everlasting legacy.”
