Bolton's Zat Knight sticks up for Ashley Cole
Ashley Cole‘s mate Zat Knight insists the Chelsea footballer was a good boy while he was on holiday in California.
Air hostess Kerry Meades claims she shared Ashley‘s bed for a night of pillow talk, but Bolton defender Zat says Cheryl Cole’s ex was on his best behaviour.
‘I was on holiday with him but he was just a normal lad,’ says Zat, 31. ‘He didn’t get up to any mischief.
‘I feel sorry for him. Don’t get me wrong, he has caused his own problems at times but he is trying to do the right thing.
‘Yet no matter what he does, it seems like it is wrong.’
Ashley and ex-wife Cheryl, 28, divorced last year, but the Girls Aloud star has never stopped loving her soccer star former spouse and he wants her back in his arms.
Zat describes Ashley, 30, as a ‘great lad’ and thinks his personal life should be kept separate from his career.
‘From the outside looking in, other people make judgements and then don’t give you that chance to put them right,’ he tells The Sun.
‘He’s trying to change his future because he just wants to play football.’
