The Daily Mail says only 48 hours after his offensive â€˜bunch of t***sâ€™ tweet to the FA, the Chelsea defender sparked a new controversy by retweeting a message posted by a member of the public that essentially accused Alan Shearer of hypocrisy.
Talking on Match of the Day, Shearer called for Cole to be suspended for the San Marino game for his attack on the FA.
Cole, who faces FA disciplinary action for his tweet on Friday, hit back by retweeting a message which said: "Alan Shearer says @TheRealAC3 needs to be banned for comments. I want his opinion on bans for kicking Neil Lennon in the head. #GlassHouses."
That was a reference to Shearer, England captain at the time, tangling with Lennon in a Leicester versus Newcastle match in 1998.
