Former Liverpool defender Neil Ruddock has sparked a social media backlash over an interview in which he admitted deliberately breaking Andy Cole's legs.
In the Talksport interview, Ruddock said he had targeted Cole because of the Manchester United striker's feud with fellow England star Teddy Sheringham.
Cole was injured when Ruddock tackled him during a reserve game in 1996.
"Basically, I loved kicking Andrew Cole," Ruddock told Talksport.
"I know this is not big or clever but in one tackle I broke both his legs, because he annoyed me."
Explaining the reason for the horror tackle, which sidelined Cole for several months, Ruddock said: "I'm great friends with Teddy Sheringham and Teddy Sheringham didn't like him - and if Teddy Sheringham didn't like him, I don't like him."
Twitter users were unanimous in their disapproval of Ruddock's admission, with some noting that it was a good thing that the game had changed since the burly defender's 90s heyday.

Acts of violence should constitute much heavier punishments. Suspensions should be for months and years, not games and weeks. Image Copyright @_Rob_B@_ROB_B

The defender, whose nickname is "Razor", said he had targeted Cole in a reserve-team game between Liverpool and Manchester United in 1996.

Cole, 47, who played 15 times for England, is the Premier League's third highest goalscorer, behind Alan Shearer and Wayne Rooney.
In a career that is best remembered for his time at Newcastle and Manchester United, he won all the major honours in domestic football, as well as a Champions League title.
In a recent interview with the Guardian, he spoke about the kidney transplant that saved his life.
In 2010, Cole revealed that he "would rather sit down and have a cuppa with Neil Ruddock" than with Teddy Sheringham.
Cole said he never forgave Sheringham for snubbing him as he took to the field while making his England debut in 1995.

What a shit player
Admitting this confirms he's a cunt

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
He tried to sue us for fining him for being unprofessional. Hardly a fucking club legend. And yeah that's a Harry story so doubtless there is a lot of exaggeration in the telling but I suspect the 'bare bones' (groan) are accurate.

Wasn't the 'Can't Pay..." tv episode about money he owed to a dog kennels owner?

The bailffs wanted to impound his cars but couldn't touch them because they were leased.

Something like that...

arsene york-hunt used the word "soubriquet" on WHO.

You don't see words like that very often on here.

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
A bloke who uses the soubriquet of another , more famous bloke ie. Razor, has got to be an utter cunt.

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
The last time I saw Ruddock on telly it was one of these fly on the wall bailiff programmes and they were chasing the fat fucker around trying to seize the lease cars that he'd got for him and his brassy missus and not kept up the payments for... sweat dripping off him and chain smoking he lied and lied again on camera about paying their money and predictably didn't turn up with it after several ' I swear on my life' promises ... not that bailiffs are nice people but Razors basically a lowlife that happens to be a decent footballer once ....

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
wasn't Andy Cole a thief?

stole from Newcastle and Arsenal dressing rooms

and was the reason Cantona had to wear his collars high up - just to hide the marks from carrying Cole all season

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
I know that some of our fans found him amusing but he was one of the worst defenders that I've ever seen. How this cunt stole a living with so many big money moves to top level clubs is a mystery to me...

Does Sherringham love Ruddock as much as Ruddock loves Sherringham?

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Me too
Seems to be a role that’s gone out of fashion and everyone wants a striker to do more
Cole was a guarantee of 20+ goals every season
Someone who could finish like him would be very useful right now

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Ruddock is a bag of shite.
I hope he will end like an alcoholic with no money who asks for spare changes and selling the Big Issue.

Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Sounds like you're saying being a prolific goal scorer is a bad thing!

Tbf, I'd take a prolific goal scorer that didn't pass, take free kicks or corners right now

Sven Roeder 10:02 Fri Nov 2
Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Oh and Ruddock was a fat useless twat

Sven Roeder 10:01 Fri Nov 2
Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Sheringham was a better all round footballer who could play as a 10
Cole was just a goal machine, a predator and a finisher. Can’t recall ever seeing him make a pass or take a corner or free kick

brick_lane_batty_boy 9:53 Fri Nov 2
Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Teddy Sheringham was a better footballer than Andy Cole - wasn't anywhere near as prolific a goal scorer. Two totally different players - Who sat on the shoulder and got in behind, the other dropped deep and brought others in.

They played well together despite not getting on - imagine what they would've been like had there been come chemistry

fraser 9:36 Fri Nov 2
Re: Ruddock admits deliberately breaking Cole's leg
Sheringham was a better player than Cole.
