Ashley Cole has been the subject of interest from abroad for much of his career, yet people were still a bit surprised when word came through that he was off to join AS Roma.

The left-back explains how his move to Italy came about, in the video below, and compliments the club, talking with admiration in his tone about the project Rudi Garcia’s have undertaken.

Cole said: “My time was up in Chelsea and I got a call from my agent saying Roma were interested. And as soon as I spoke to the manager and the staff here, the way they showed me love and wanted to be a part of something big, I jumped at the chance.

Like I said before it’s a big club, an ambitious club, and hopefully we can do something special next year and win the league.”

The chances of domestic glory have greatly increased after Antonio Conte resigned as Juventus manager, many anticipate that the club will sell at least one star player.
