Coleâ€™s relationship with AVB has flourished since the managerâ€™s Âarrival from Porto in the summer. The left-back rubbished claims when the 33-year-old boss arrived that there were egos in the ÂChelsea dressing room that would undermine his authority.
â€śAge is just a number. He has experience of being at Porto, a big club,â€ť said Cole.
â€śHopefully he can bring that glory to Chelsea, but I donâ€™t think the age thing is anything to worry about.
â€śHe is our manager and we have to go out and fight for him.
â€śWhatever manager comes in we respect him. We are not kids. ÂEveryone thinks there are egos at Chelsea, but there arenâ€™t.â€ť
