Carlton Cole faced some harsh critics by his own fans following his performance in a Mark Noble’s testimonial. Although the game was meant to be a friendly one, fans did not really appreciate the way Carlton Cole played in the match.
This reaction can be explained by the fact that Cole has yet to show any sort of brilliance for the Celtic team and that fans have become quite fed up with his performance. This can signify the end of the relationship between Carlton Cole and Celtic and he might even be tempted to move away during the summer.
His last game for Celtic came on 19th January when the Scottish side beat Hamilton 8-1. Celtic fans took to Twitter where they criticized Cole for his poor form as well as his lack of ability on the pitch.
Cole joined Celtic in 2015 and has so far made five appearances for the Scottish club. He stated that he joined Celtic in order to have more playing time and also because he wanted to win trophies. He belies that Celtic are in an excellent position to be successful and that he wanted to contribute to this success. He was previously at West Ham where he managed more than 290 appearances for the London team. He scored 68 goals in the process where he was quite a favorite player.
With the kind of criticism that the English player has received on Twitter, the chances are that he will not stay for long at Celtic.
Among the different players on the pitch, there was Paolo Di Canio, Dean Ashton, Adrian and Mark Noble himself. It was a great occasion to find all these great players in a friendly match, and most of them did not seem to have lost their special touch that makes them outstanding players.
