West Ham striker Carlton Cole has accepted a Football Association charge for making abusive comments towards a Tottenham fan on Twitter. The 31-year-old reacted to a comment on social media after a 2-2 draw between the sides on 22 February, where he went off injured having been subbed on. An FA independent commission will now meet to decide his sanction. In April 2011, he was fined £20,000 by the FA for comments he made on Twitter during England’s friendly with Ghana. On that occasion, he wrote: “Immigration has surrounded the Wembley premises! I knew it was a trap!” before deleting the comments. “The only way to get out safely is to wear an England jersey and paint your face w/ the St George’s flag!” He later apologised for the comments, describing them as a “light-hearted joke”. Cole has made 17 appearances for the Hammers this season and scored three goals.
The thing is they get charged all the time yet they wont learnt. I wonder o. Sorry o brother Cole (has a Nigerian father and a Sierra Leonean mother). His full names are Carlton Michael George Cole Okorie. His dad is from Omoku in Rivers state but he played for England at youth and senior levels.
