Not 48 hours since Tottingham beat the Arabs finest they revisit the long rumbling Joe Cole saga rears it’s pretty little head.
In a piece naturally devoid of quotes it’s alleged that Joeseph is determined to flee his on/off relationship with the Stamford Bridge bench. The stumbling block of course, being Tottenham’s wage structure.
My view, for what it’s worth, is that this is simply cobblers designed to give some desperate credibility to the player’s negotiations.
Cole has perhaps missed the boat plane to South Africa now and so at 28, this is surely all about nest feathering – especially with a family in place.
If Chelsea are looking to offer the player a pay cut (which is my suspicion) then he my well do himself no harm in touting himself, but this £100k pwk nonsense needs to be abandoned sooner rather than later.
What say you?
