Chelsea legend Ashley Cole has revealed he has no regrets about dumping Arsenal for Chelsea on transfer deadline day in 2006.

According to Cole, the move to Chelsea was meant to be.

When asked if he thought he could have handled the move from one London giant to another, Cole told BBC Sport: “One hundred per cent, it’s not just entirely my fault, and it’s not entirely their fault.

“I was probably a little bit too stubborn at the time and felt a little bit hard done by. I was a little bit babyish, to be honest, but it’s something I won’t ever regret, and I wouldn’t ever change that situation.

“It’s just something that happened. Maybe it was meant to be, who knows? But I definitely feel unjust about it because it wasn’t what people think in terms of money. It’s crazy, but that was probably the last thing on my mind.”
