Former Arsenal and Chelsea star Ashley Cole was considered to be the best left-back in the world for many years.
However, the 34-year-old is way past his best.

Cole’s stock has fallen dramatically since his free transfer to Roma last summer.
He featured in just 11 Serie A games during his first season in Italy, as he fell behind both Vasilis Toroosidis and Jose Holebas in the pecking order at Stadio Olympico.
According to the Daily Star, Newcastle United could be about to offer Cole an escape route out of his Rome nightmare.
It is likely that Newcastle’s offer would be to sign him on a season-long loan.
A return to the Premier League would presumably appeal to Cole, who made 385 top-flight appearances for Arsenal and Chelsea combined.
He enjoyed success with both London giants, winning two Premier League titles and three FA Cups with the Gunners, before adding another Prem and four more FA Cups with Chelsea, as well as the League Cup, Champions League and Europa League.
