Ashley Cole has risked antagonising Arsenal fans by claiming it is amusing to watch their continued lack of success.
The former England full-back left the Gunners for Chelsea in 2006 in a deal that infuriated supporters of Arsene Wenger’s side.
“I had a great time [at Arsenal], I missed the old players that were there but I moved on and won every trophy I could,” Cole told ITV’s Play to the Whistle. “I wouldn’t look back and say I regretted it, no.
“If I’m honest, yes – I still think to this day, I laugh to myself.
“I had a lot of history there and I think the way I left was maybe a bit dodgy, but the lack of respect they showed me as well.
“Maybe I did things in the wrong way. But when I look back at it now I think there were a lot of parties I could blame.
“But it’s gone now and it’s 10 years down the line.”
The 36 year old currently pays for MLS side LA Galaxy.
