Ashley Cole made it official today that he will be signing a deal with Serie A giants AS Roma for the upcoming season. Many Chelsea fans were holding on to the slim hopes that he would still return to Stamford Bridge but obviously that is not going to happen anymore. We found some of the best reactions on Twitter about the news of our favorite left back’s departure to Italy.

Good luck to Ashley Cole at Roma. England's most reliable big game player (so obviously not taken to World Cup). Amazed more don't go abroad

Will be great to get Roma in the group stages of the Champions League to give @TheRealAC3 the reception Ballack and Drogba got.
