Chelsea defender Ashley Cole could be in for Jose Mourinho’s wrath and not for smoking cigarettes this time ’round. The ex-Arsenal left-back joined rival teammates as the Gunners celebrated their Christmas party on Wednesday night- despite Mourinho cancelling his players’ own gig.
Cole, who according to Sportsmail, is believed to have been joined by Ryan Bertrand and Andre Schurrle, pulled up at trendy London nightspot Libertine to party with the ‘Gunners’ who were dressed in fancy dresses like: Hulk, Superman, Supermario and the likes.
The Portuguese boss took the decision to cancel the players’ annual Christmas party, which was due to take place at the same venue on Wednesday night after Tuesday’s League Cup loss to Sunderland. And 25 hours later, Cole, Bertrand and Schurrle decided to hit the town along with their London rivals.
Arsenal hosts Chelsea at the Emirate stadium on Monday and the ‘Blues could go top of the Premier League standing with a win.
Meanwhile, the players were not forbidden from going out but the fact Mourinho had stopped the Blues’s own bash means he might not be down with the idea.
