Blues legend Ashley Cole, who’s currently with LA Galaxy, is preparing for life outside of his playing career.
The 36-year-old was a cult hero at Chelsea and is regarded by many as England and even Premier League’s best ever left-back.
Cole uploaded an image of notebooks alongside some tactical points on his instagram page.
“Hotel life = home work studying the game from different aspects,” read the caption.
He once revealed that he’ll love to return to Chelsea after his playing career.
”I hope I can go back to Chelsea and do something there, not so much coaching but scouting or something,” he said last year.
“I enjoy scouting, watching the young lads come through. I have done a little for my agent, but I’d like to do something a bit more serious. I’d love to go back to work at Chelsea somewhere, somehow.
“When you win the Champions League as I did with Chelsea, it is the ultimate.
“Just the feeling to know I have played in a team and won a trophy that a lot of teams would want to win. You play against all the big teams.”
