Indonesian Club To Axe Goalless Carlton Cole
Unlike Nigeria’s Peter Odemwingie, striker Carlton Cole has not scored a goal since taking his football career to Indonesia.
Report has it on Tuesday, that the former West Ham and Chelsea forward is to be sacked by Indonesia's Persib after failing to find the net since his arrival in March.
According to the team's manager Umuh Muchtar, Cole has played "very badly" and will be replaced for the second stage of the season, which starts on Saturday.
"It's the management's decision to dismiss him, we will have a new player in the second round of the season," Muchtar told AFP.
"He plays very badly compared to the other (foreign players) who have joined Persib. He had the worst performance," Muchtar added.
Cole joined Persib two weeks after his former Chelsea team-mate Michael Essien in what was a buying spree for the Bandung-based club.
Cole signed a one-year contract for an undisclosed sum with Persib, owned by Indonesian businessman Erick Thohir -- who is also president of Italian giants - Inter Milan.
