Former Arsenal favourite Ashely Cole has admitted he still laughs at the club almost a decade later.

Speaking on ITV, the former Arsenal left-back said: "I had a great time there and of course I miss the old players but I moved on and I won every trophy I could, so I wouldn’t say I look back and regret it, no."

“If I’m honest, yeah, I still laugh to myself to this day. I had a lot of history there and of course the way I left was maybe dodgy, but I think they showed me a lack of respect, too.

“I have to blame myself too. Perhaps I did things in the wrong way.But when I look back on it now I could blame a lot of parties and it’s now 10 years ago.”

Cole joined Chelsea in 2006 for £5 million after turning down Arsenal's derisory £55,000 a week deal. He won nine trophies at Roman Abramovich's backed club while Arsenal have only two FA Cup wins to show since he left.
