Real Madrid coach Mourinho : I'd never insult Chelsea by trying for Cole

Real Madrid coach Jose Mourinho insists he never tried to prise Ashley Cole away from Chelsea.

He insisted he had not attempted to lure his former charge away from Stamford Bridge.

"I never try to take players from my ex-clubs," added 50-year-old Mourinho, who won the domestic cup double with Cole in 2007. "Unless the club is willing to let them go - and CFC ­always wanted him."
