Pretty cool, isn’t it? Ashley gave away his medal because the kid actually asked for it. For all the flak, Cole, gets, he needs to be praised for this gesture.
A few folks will say, it was not a winners medal and it probably meant nothing to Cole. Well, how many other players gave away theirs? Or have done so in the past or at other tournaments? Safe to assume, not a lot.
Anyways, next time if we have a genuine doubt, it is easier to ask Ashley Cole than just assume something ourselves. Isn’t it? He had cleared the air, recently, regarding his contract talks. He had denied the media claims of him demanding £200k/week as wages for his new contract.
There are always ways to use Twitter productively. A couple of those examples are from Ashley Cole. Lets hope he continues to do so and not end up in trouble like some others have.
Keep it neat Ash.
