Chelsea: Fans react to Ashley Cole performance against Ronaldo

Chelsea: Fans react to Ashley Cole performance against Ronaldo

Cristiano Ronaldo is largely regarded as one of the best footballers of all-time and his incredible goal record of over 700 throughout his career would suggest he’s got the best out of many an opponent over the course of it. 

Still, one opponent to have left a mark on the Juventus superstar is a certain Ashley Cole. Indeed, Ronaldo told Coach Mag (via Sky Sports) back in 2016 that the Englishman was one of his toughest opponents and that the former Arsenal ace does ‘not give you a second to breathe’.

Cole – who won pretty much every major trophy available to him as a Blue – was also part of a defence that limited the Portuguese to just one goal (albeit in a Champions League final) in 15 games against the west London giants, per Transfermarkt.

Chelsea’s official Twitter account decided to relive one of the games where Cole marked him ahead of the two sides meeting in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night, and some of the replies from Chelsea fans are brilliant.

Chelsea fans, how much do you miss this battle? Let us know below!
