Ashley Cole on Roma’s famous Romulus & Remus logo: “It’s a baby sucking a wolf’s titties” [Video]

Before Roma played Manchester United in a high-profile pre-season friendly in America, Ashley Cole and Danny Welbeck took part in an interactive Google hangout.

During the session Cole, who recently joined Roma after his contract at Chelsea expired, was asked to describe the Giallorossi’s famous club logo.

The logo features the mythical story of Romulus and Remus, the twin brothers who are famed for being fictional characters in the story of the foundation of Rome’s foundation myth, after they were saved by a she-wolf, who raised them. 

Clearly unfamiliar with the story, Ashley Cole thought the logo was a picture of “a baby sucking a wolf’s titties”.

Way to keep it classy!
