Milan's Mourinho advises Cole against moving abroad

Inter Milan boss Jose Mourinho believes Ashley Cole should stick with Chelsea rather than moving abroad.

Reports suggested earlier this week that Cole, currently sidelined with an ankle injury, is considering his future with the Blues, with a summer switch to one of Europe's top clubs on the agenda.

Mourinho, who worked with Cole during his time in charge at Stamford Bridge, feels it would be a bad career move to leave the Premier League.

"Ashley has to look after himself," said the Portuguese.

"I called him a couple of days ago because I care about him.

"My advice to him is don't leave England.

"Ancelotti and his family must give him advice. But, for me, he will not help himself by moving abroad."
