Ashley Cole posed with his new Roma teammates as if he wasn't sure if he was allowed to be in the photo and the internet took over from there. So now Ashley Cole hovering in the background with his hands clasped behind his back has become a meme and no one finds it funnier than Ashley Cole himself. 

Cole retweeted several of the photoshops doing the rounds, including a couple that called back to painful moments in his recent past. First, he shared one of him standing under the plane as the England team he was excluded from prepared to depart for the World Cup.

Then he shared one that had him in the background of a photo of ex-wife Cheryl Cole with her new husband.

Finally, he also liked one that put him in goal for Maradona's Hand of God goal.

You can say a lot of things about Ashley Cole, but you can't say he doesn't have a good sense of humor about himself.
