The Football Association has charged Ashley Cole over his Twitter outburst which the governing body feels was 'improper and/or brought the game into disrepute'.

The Chelsea and England defender called the FA a "bunch of t***s" after the governing body's independent regulatory commission investigating the John Terry racial abuse case cast doubt on his evidence.

A statement on the FA's website said: "Chelsea FC's Ashley Cole has been charged by The FA in relation to a Twitter comment which was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Cole has until 4pm on Thursday, October 11 to respond to the charge.

The Chelsea defender linked up with the England squad on Monday, ahead of their World Cup qualifiers with San Marino and Poland.

Reports suggest that if he is found guilty, Cole could be banned for at least one of those games as part of his punishment.

Serves him right. Too arrogant for my liking. Should give Baines, a deserving chance at the England spot.

Its more or less same as in any other profession some individual are very unprofessional towards their approach but how come tweeting something classified as "bringing game into disrepute" its more or less complaining rather loudly.

How stupid are some of these athletes. Do they not think? There were a couple of athletes who posted some racist comments on their twitter accounts and were then thrown out of the Olympics. If you post it, it can be seen by everyone you morons!
