Having brought up at Chelsea FC academy and started his senior professional career at Chelsea, the former Chelsea player got all criticism from Chelsea fans because of his actions.

During his playing days, he left Chelsea where he made 34 appearances with 8 goals and later joined West Ham. Cole made a total of 293 appearances for West Ham, scoring 67 times.

The 38 years old has now addressed the criticism, explaining his view and wrote on his Twitter handle: “How any Chelsea supporter can criticize me for celebrating West Ham scoring and winning is beyond me…”

“..Let’s get this right! I’m supposed to not celebrate because you gave me a chance in my youth days? Of course I’m grateful for that but I spent my best and longest years at the Hammers who gave me a chance too and continue to give me support in my coaching development”

He continued “Plus we needed the points to stay in the league. Circumstances have made it this way. Not that I don’t want Chelsea to do well, but I’d celebrate like that against any team we grinded a win from especially in these times”

He then concludes.. “Don’t be bitter. Chelsea will always hold a special place in my heart”.

West Ham have now 3 point clear off the relegation zone, after the game.
