Carlton at “war” with latest club


CarltonCOLECarlton Cole has slammed his latest manager  Persib Bandung  Umuh Muchtar who claims he plays ” very badly ” in comparison to other players who have joined the club.

CC moved to Asia in March but now looks set for the axe after failing to score.

Cole, however, claims he has only played twice in 16 games, despite the manager’s comments.

Muchtar told AFP: “He plays very badly compared to the other (foreign players) who have joined Persib. He had the worst performance.”

But Carlton has retorted  claiming that he is involved in a “war” at the club owned by Inter Milan president Erick Thor.

He said on talkSPORT: “I am fit as a fiddle. The manager didn’t bring me here and he doesn’t want me to play. That’s what’s going on.”

    Good luck CC hope you get everything sorted.

  • Mr Buddy Lurve says:

    You’re always welcome back to West Ham, Carlton. We could use all the help we can get to speed up switching of the retractable seating… Only kidding – love you. xx

    Unless money was the motivation, I never understood why Cole went there……. One of the bigger Championship clubs would suit him now – Wolves, Sheffield Weds, Derby, Forest, Norwich, Reading, Fulham etc

  • Radai Lama says:

    Dont think any of them would want him tbh TRB.He is a bit past that standard now i reckon.
    Only my opinion of course 😊

    Persil Banged Up Oi My Mucker? What sort of a name is that for a manager? His Mum must have been looking for a name to give him on the internet with the predictive text turned on.

    He must be a bit of a beast if he has got CC that wound up.

  • Hammer64 says:

    No hate Ian, but did you see that screamer he scored at UP about ten years ago vs the Spuds? You know the one. He surprised himself so much with it that with his next kick he passed back straight to Defoe who got their equaliser! It’s the only goal I remember him (CC ) getting from further out than 5 yards. Did I dream it? Was I p*****?

  • ianthehammer says:

    Dam, I’d forgotten about that one. Lost 1-2 didn’t we?!

  • Hammer64 says:

    Yeah that’s the one.
