Chelsea fullback Cole could be missing for longer than three months

Chelsea fullback Ashley Cole could be missing for longer than the three months announced last night.

The Sun says Cole, with his ankle injury, should be back training within 12 weeks but that's without complications, which can set in when you mend the injury with a screw or wire.

And if he has damaged the ligament then his recovery may take longer.

Chelsea and England will be keeping their fingers crossed it is a straightforward ankle fracture.
