Tottenham full back Kyle Walker has come to the defence of Ashley Cole and wants to learn as much as he can from him.

However, for all the negatives in Ashley Cole’s character, Walker believes he has the perfect example to follow in a man who has made 98 appearances for his country and could yet hit the century over the next few days.

“I try to be like a sponge with him, absorb everything he’s done and bring it into my game,” he said.

“Everything he’s achieved in the game is what I want to achieve because Ashley has been ridiculously good, and the stats show it.

“He wouldn’t get 100 caps if he wasn’t doing something right.”
