Cole will be disciplined by Chelsea

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed Ashley Cole will be disciplined by the club for his Twitter outburst.

Cole vented his anger at the Football Association after they published a report detailing why John Terry was banned for the racial abuse of Anton Ferdinand and in it criticised the evidence Cole gave.

“We have a social media policy here at Chelsea and there is going to be disciplinary action against the tweet,” Di Matteo said after the Blues’ 4-1 win over Norwich.

“We have rules here and if a player breaches the rules they have to face the consequences.”

Di Matteo added: “I did speak to Ashley in a private conversation and we spoke about the tweet.

“I do not have a problem with players using social media as long as it is used correctly and responsibly.”
