Chelsea defender Ashley Cole will reportedly be charged by the FA today for branding the English governing body a "bunch of tw*ts" last week.

Chelsea full-back Ashley Cole will reportedly be hit with a formal charge by the Football Association today following his criticism of the governing body on Twitter.

The England international branded the FA a "bunch of tw*ts" after the written reasons regarding John Terry's ban were published last week.

It is believed that the 31-year-old is likely to face a fine rather than a match-ban following the tweet, which was later deleted from the social network site, according to The Express.

Reports have also claimed that Cole could be dropped from the Three Lions team to face San Marino in their 2014 World Cup qualifier on Friday.
