Chelsea fullback Cole charged for Twitter rant

Chelsea star Ashley Cole has been charged by the FA over his Twitter outburst.

Chelsea star Ashley Cole has been charged by the FA over his Twitter outburst.

The Chelsea and England defender called the FA a "bunch of t***s" after the governing body's independent regulatory commission investigating the John Terry racial abuse case cast doubt on his evidence.

A statement on the FA's website said: "Chelsea FC's Ashley Cole has been charged by The FA in relation to a Twitter comment which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Cole has until 4pm on Thursday, October 11 to respond to the charge.
