The erswhile Arsenal,  Chelsea and England defender Ashley Cole has officially announced his retirement from all forms of football activities at the age of 38 following a 20 years long career.



The legendary left-back made the annoncement on Sky Sports Super Sunday ahead of the Blues' clash with Leicester City in the Premier League.

It is worthy of note that he is a three-time title winner and Champions League victor during his playing days with the London outfit and their rivals Arsenal, he was released by Debry County at the end of the 2018-19 campaign.

"After hard thinking and consideration, it was obviously time to hang my boots up and look towards my next chapter," he stated on Sky Sports.

Widely considered to be one of the best left-backs of his generation, Cole came through the junior ranks at Arsenal and, save for a brief loan spell with Crystal Palace in 2000, spent all of the early part of his career from his debut in 1999 until 2006 with the Gunners at Highbury.
