The big scandal surrounding John Terry’s extramarital affair has barely died down, but Chelsea now have another tabloid storm to face with news that their injured left-back Ashley Cole not only cheated on his wife, but used the club to help him cover it up.

Cole’s transgressions are attracting the big tabloids, because he is married to famous Girl Aloud popstar Cheryl, a marriage that does not look set to last after revelations that the Chelsea player took a girl into the team hotel during Chelsea’s pre-season tour of the United States. Cole then allegedly “mislead” Chelsea officials into covering up for him in order to save his marriage. News of the World revealed that is not Cole’s first incident like this either.

The news comes only a week after Chelsea tried to clean up their image and use their disgraced captain as an example of how not to behave. As a result, Ashley Cole is facing a record £400,000 fine, which isn’t that severe when you estimate it’s only a few weeks wages for him. With a long-term injury and possible divorce at his hands, he definitely has more important things to worry about.

So, Chelsea’s players continue getting hit with allegations of cheating, but truth be told, Anchelotti hasn’t let this affect their performance one bit. They are still on blistering form in the Premiership and find themselves four points clear off ManUnited. Some teams are just too good to let anything slow them down it seems.
