When you think of Chelsea’s golden era during the mid-2000s there are a number of names that immediately spring to mind.
John Terry, Frank Lampard, Didier Drogba, Petr Cech. However, one of the more forgotten men from that squad is Carlton Cole.
He’s best remembered for his time as a West Ham player, but his career began at Chelsea.
The former England international took to Instagram on Thursday to post a throwback snap reminding us that he was in fact a teammate of these world-class talents.

Cole posted an image showing a pre-match photo where he lined up alongside some of footballs biggest names such as Arjen Robben.
This nostalgic image caught the attention of the current Blues boss as Lampard liked the post on social media.
The 35-year-old clearly has fond memories of his time at Chelsea, and it seems that he maintains a decent relationship with his former teammate.
