England 'footballer' - I use the term loosely - Ashley Cole apparently launched a foul-mouthed rant about England and its 'people' days before flying out to the World Cup to play football for his country.
The message - which read 'I hate England and the f***ing people - was sent to friends from the Chelsea defender's Blackberry shortly before he boarded a flight to England's pre-World Cup training camp in Austria.
The 29-year-old posted it as his status message - alongside a picture of him sunbathing topless - allowing all those designated as his friends to see it.
