Former Chelsea and England left-back Ashley Cole has joined Major League Soccer side LA Galaxy. Cole, 35, will link up with former international team-mate Steven Gerrard after the defender’s contract with Roma was terminated by mutual consent. He joined the Italian Serie A side in July 2014 and made 16 appearances. “Whether you think it’s a risk or a gamble, these are the risks and gambles that you take,” said LA Galaxy head coach and general manager Bruce Arena. Capped 107 times, Cole has won three Premier Leagues, seven FA Cups, one Champions League and one Europa League.
