Cole revels in Roma 'passion'

Ashley Cole has described the passion of the Roma fans, and claims that he would be disappointed if he didn’t win something.

The 33-year-old left Chelsea at the end of the season on a free transfer, and was quickly snapped up by the Giallorossi this month.

And the veteran defender has admitted he was taken aback by the Lupi supporters, and hopes to lift some silverware this term.

“I have felt the fans passion since I arrived here,” he told Roma Channel. “There were a lot of fans even when I arrived at the airport.

“They sing and encourage us even in training. I’ve really felt their presence. I had been told about their passion, and I can’t wait to see it in the stadium.

“Hopefully I can contribute to something special. I’ve always had that winning mentality, and I’ve been lucky enough to be successful in my career.

“The goal here is to win. If we don’t I’ll be disappointed.”
