ENGLAND and Chelsea left back Ashley Cole is teaming up with rapper Jay-Z to tackle on the music business on his retirement.
Rather than continue in football, Ashley – former husband to popstar Cheryl Cole – wants to launch a record label when he hangs up his boots, and has recruited the experience of Jay-Z to show him the ropes.
Reports quote a source saying: “Ash is a big hip-hop fan and is mates with rappers like Tinchy Stryder so it’s no surprise that he wants to work with Jay-Z.
“After spending years married to Cheryl Cole he knows a bit about the business too.
“He’s still got a good few years playing ahead of him but is looking ahead to what he’ll do when he leaves the game.”
Perhaps he could sign up Drogba and Malouda’s band?
