London, Feb. 23 (ANI): Left-back Ashley Cole is reportedly angry over the prospect of Chelsea FC taking disciplinary action against him for his off-field behaviour.
According to The Guardian, Cole believes he is being victimised by the club and its CEO Ron Gourlay, and may consider leaving Stamford Bridge.
Cole could face sanctions up to and including the possibility of being transfer-listed, although a hefty fine is a more likely punishment following allegations about extra-marital relationships.
He is said to feel he is being unfairly singled out after no action was taken against Chelsea's captain, John Terry, for an alleged affair with the former partner of Wayne Bridge, which cost the central defender the England armband.
There are indications that Cole is so incensed at the prospect of being punished that he could look to leave Chelsea in the summer. He is expected to make his feelings known to Gourlay when they meet, most likely on Thursday or Friday rather than before tomorrow's Champions League game at Internazionale, which Cole will miss because of injury.
