Cole accepts misconduct charge for Twitter post

  •  

LONDON (AP) - Ashley Cole has accepted a charge of misconduct for insulting the Football Association in an offensive Twitter post.

Cole agreed that he brought the game into disrepute when he reacted angrily last Friday to an FA commission questioning the evidence he gave in defending teammate John Terry against a charge of racially abusing an opponent.

But the Chelsea defender escaped a ban from England for the 2014 World Cup qualifiers against San Marino on Friday and Poland on Tuesday.

Cole, who is also set to be fined by Chelsea for the tweet, has requested a hearing.
