Ashley Cole: My Perfect Player

Ahead of the London derby, ex-Arsenal and Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole builds his all-time perfect player - best left foot, right foot…but who made the cut?
Cristiano Ronaldo, Ronaldinho, Andres Iniesta, Arjen Robben, Michael Essien, Ludovic Giuly, Cafu and John Terry are all on his list, but for which trait?
Cole reveals his choices to Goal’s Chelsea correspondent Nizaar Kinsella but do you agree with his picks?

  • I really loved him when he was at Arsenal. Was hoping him to be the next Mr Arsenal after Tony Adams. I was gutted when he left. Never liked him at Chelsea. But all is good. He seems to be a nice bloke.

  • I haven't heard any player who has not referred Ronaldinho as the Magician. He is the only player who has been at the top, be it playing in a football pitch, futsal or freestyling. The only footballer with a smile regardless of what the outcome is at the final whistle.

    • @Ahmed Omar lol. I'm a Liverpool fan and it's not close. Andys great going forward but the most important part of being a defender is DEFENDING and in that area Cole was lightyears better
