Chelsea fullback Cole will happily "play ugly" to win in Munich

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole will happily play ugly against Bayern Munich if it means winning the Champions League final.

Cole is adamant that lifting the cup for the first time in the club's history is all that matters.

"Football is about winning games and if we have to do it ugly, you do it ugly," said the left-back. "Football is about winning trophies.

"Do fans want to see a great footballing team or someone who is picking up trophies playing ugly? For me I'd rather play ugly and win every trophy you can. I think I can say that about all the players here.

"You have to give us credit [for the win over Barcelona].

"Of course, we rode our luck at times but not many teams can beat Barcelona.

"We had a great game plan and credit must go to the coaching staff who studied their game."
