PHOTO: Francesco Totti mocks Ashley Cole in new team photo

Ashley Cole

Italian saw the funny side of Cole’s appearance in last team photo, which has been a hit on social media.

Roma midfielder Francesco Totti has cracked a joke at former Chelsea left-back Ashley Cole in the clubs latest team photograph.

Cole was pictured earlier this week slightly distant from his team-mates in a squad photo, an incident that sent social media into uproar.

This time Totti posed slightly apart from the rest of the team, pointing the joke towards Cole.

Cole has seen the funny side of the original photo this week, sharing jokes with his Twitter followers. The scenario resembles Cole’s ex-team-mate John Terry, who also became the subject of humour on social media following his celebrations in winning the Champions League in 2012, where he did not play a part in the final.

Cole moved to Roma earlier this month following the end of his contract with Chelsea, and has already faced Liverpool and Manchester United in friendlies for his new club.

Although the Italian language will still represent a challenge to Cole as he adapts to life abroad, it seems as if he has already settled well within the squad, with players not afraid to make him the subject of the occasional joke.

Will Ashley Cole be as success in Italy?
