Cole to be punished for Twitter rant

Chelsea manager Roberto Di Matteo has confirmed that the club will be taking action against Ashley Cole over disparaging remarks he made towards the Football Association on Twitter.

• Di Matteo pleased with attitude
• Cole apologises for tirade
• Blog: Terry storm to continue

Cole, 31, was forced to apologise to the FA on Friday after labelling them a "bunch of t***s'' for accusing him of "evolving" his statement supporting John Terry's defence against the charge he racially abused Anton Ferdinand.

The former Arsenal man, who is England's most capped full-back of all time, had appeared in danger of burning his bridges with the national team after the comments but he swiftly issued an apology for his comments.

Cole's apology is unlikely to appease either the FA or his club and Chelsea boss Di Matteo has stressed that the left-back will be disciplined, while an FA charge is also expected in the coming days.

"We've got a social media policy at the club and there's going to be a disciplinary process - action - against the tweet and that's how I'll leave it," Di Matteo said.

"I spoke to Ahsley about his tweet and other issues. He apologised unreservedly and I now want to talk about football matters. I remain in favour of the social media, but they have to be used sensibly. This is the world we live it and it is a good way to communicate if done well. If my players breach a rule, there will be a consequence."

Di Matteo also insisted the chaos surrounding Terry and Cole has not sparked a siege mentality within his squad, as he insists they can detach themselves from events off the field when when the moment comes to play high level matches.

"Our results are telling us that we are able to blank out things that are surrounding us and we can focus on our aim to win football games," he added. "We are scoring lots of goals, have many different players scoring them and the team is getting results. This is more important than anything else."

The win against Norwich may have been Terry's last in a Chelsea shirt for some time as he ponders an appeal against the four game ban hanging over him after the FA found him guilty of racially abusing Anton Ferdinand, while Cole may also face FA charges after he abused the game's authorities.

Despite their off-field troubles, Chelsea have pieced together their finest start to a Premier League season in six years and head into the international break with a clear lead at the top of the table.
