Roma Have Weirdly Started Cropping Ashley Cole Out of Their Players’ Twitter Photos

Roma Have Weirdly Started Cropping Ashley Cole Out of Their Players’ Twitter Photos

It was supposed to be a move to broaden his horizons in the twilight of his career but Ashley Cole’s move to Roma really hasn’t turned into the Italian swansong he hoped it would be.

Hundreds of Roma supporters turned out at Rome airport in July 2014 as the Chelsea legend touched down on Italian soil hoping to for the perfect end to his glittering career.

But the left-back, 35 next month, was mercilessly frozen out by Rudi Garcia’s side last season before he was released from his contract a year early in August.

And now it appears the Serie A side have taken a more personal approach erasing Cole from the club’s history by cropping him out of any pictures on their official social media platforms.

Mohamed Salah, another former Chelsea player, tweeted out a picture on Wednesday of a bit of recovery work he was doing whilst his team-mates were off on international duty, and Cole, who we presume is still able to use Roma’s facilities until the end of his contract, happened to creep up in the background of the shot…

Nothing strange there, right? Sure. But Roma took it upon themselves to retweet the in-form winger later that day, but took the odd step of editing the photo to remove Cole…

To save, re-crop and edit a photo is seriously odd.

That actually takes a bit of effort! Why not just retweet the picture with Cole in it? Do they hate him that much?

And we aren’t the only ones who have noticed, some of the Giallorossi faithful have spotted it as well…

Poor Ashley!
