Chelsea ace Ashley Cole is set to be hit with a £200,000 fine for his Twitter outburst.

The Sunday Mirror says Cole will be ­punished by Chelsea for his twitter ­remark about the FA.

The England left-back was disciplined by the club after he called the FA a "Bunch of t...s".

Manager Roberto di Matteo would not reveal the details of the action taken against Cole but the fine is believed to be around £200,000.

"I am in ­favour of social media but it has to be used sensibly, " said Di Matteo.
