Stamford Bridge favorite, Ashley Cole has signed a new one year extension which keeps him at the club for one more season.
Ashley Cole had this to say about his extension –
‘I am pleased I will be starting my eighth season at Chelsea. I have great memories here and I enjoy coming to training every day. The staff are amazing and I enjoy training with the lads.
‘I have been able to fulfill nearly all my ambitions at Chelsea. I have won the Champions League, the League, I have won FA Cups here but of course you don’t want to stop winning trophies and being at a big club, you are always fighting to win a trophy.
‘Being here for seven years and being at Arsenal before that playing for trophies, you never lose that hunger. I wanted to stay at Chelsea because we are always fighting and challenging for trophies. That desire and the will to want to win things have not gone.’
The left-back has scored 7 goals in 293 games for Chelsea. Speculation was rife, that Roman Abramovich was looking to clear out the seniors this season, but Ashley signing a renewed contract gives fans renewed hope that Lampard would be given the same opportunity.
