Carlton Cole Returns To The UK Following Brief Stint With Sacramento Republic

Carlton Cole Returns To The UK Following Brief Stint With Sacramento Republic

Everyone's favourite striker Carlton Cole has returned to England after a short stint with Sacramento Republic.

The 33-year old played four times across the pond, and failed to score in 101 minutes of football.

The main purpose of the man was to boost Cole's fitness and now he has returned to the UK with the hope of finding playing opportunities closer to home.

Cole's last stint in the UK ended prematurely at Celtic when he suffered a knee injury and was subsuquently released after just eight months at the club.

His latest career move was even more brief, with the former West Ham hero planning to find a new club in the UK. If he is unsuccessful, a return to Sacramento in the United Soccer League could happen, as director of football Graham Smith reveals.

Speaking to the Sacramento Bee, he said:

"Carlton's now in very good physical condition and his match fitness is better than when he first arrived in Sacramento.

"He's gone back to the UK to see what his opportunities might be there. Then he'll let us know his plans after Christmas.

"If he is in good physical condition and wants to come back to Sacramento, I see no reason why Paul [Buckle, the head coach] wouldn't want him back next season. He's a real gentleman, and he's been great to have around our young players."

We wish Carlton all the best in his search for a new club. After all, he's indestructible. Always believe in, Carlton Cole.
