Carlton Cole on the Verge of Getting Sacked For Being Crap

 22 days ago 0 Comments

If the majority of footballers where in danger of getting sacked from their club for being shit, there’d be a hell of a lot of ex-pros in the dole queue, with Tom Cleverly likely to be working in the Job Centre itself,  but it simply isn’t the case for many of these freeloaders. The same thing however can not be said for journeyman striker Carlton Cole who is facing the axe from Indonesian ahem.. giants Persib Bandung.

Cole signed for the Indonesian side in March on a 10 month contract which would see him pairing up with fellow ex-Chelsea and Premier League beast, Michael Essien. We can’t imagine it is easy to settle in somewhere new and it goes without saying that a bit of time is needed to find your feet in a foreign league, 5 games is what the Indonesian outfit have deemed sufficient time to see a return on their investment and after doing fuck all for the majority of those games, Cole is now facing the axe.

Head coach of Persib Bandung Umuh Muchtar had this to say about poor old Carlton:

“He plays very badly compared to other foreign players who have joined Persib. He had the worst performance.

It’s the management’s decision to dismiss him, we will have a new player in the second round of the season.”

The Indonesian side are currently residing in 14th place in the Indonesian Liga 1, just two places above the relegation positions and even the mighty Essien can’t carry Carlton on his shoulders.

If Cole does get kicked off the team, that will be the end to another disappointing spell as the former West ham striker tries to see out his playing days in any kind of style. Maybe he should follow Konchesky, Pennant and O’Hara to Billericay!!
