Cole to remain at Roma

Roma manager Rudi Garcia has insisted that former England international Ashley Cole remains an important player in the first-team setup despite his recent struggles.

The 33-year-old joined the Capital outfit from Chelsea on a free transfer over the summer, and has since then failed to cement his place in the starting line-up.

However, Garcia has played down talks of Cole leaving the club in the upcoming transfer window.

"Ashley is doing fine, he's a professional," He said. "He remains an important player for us."
