Toulon boss reveals the real reason Chris Ashton quit

Toulon’s outspoken president Mourad Boujellal has revealed new information to the saga that ended with Chris Ashton quitting the Top 14 club.

In an interview with his local paper, Boujellal said: Ashton’s head was all over the place. Things got very heated, insults were thrown.

“He went from saying he wanted to leave to saying he wanted to re-sign for three years with a pay rise.



“It was going all ways and we preferred to separate. And not for 100,000 euros but a lot more.

Ashton, who joined Sale in the summer, is currently serving a seven-week suspension for illegally tackling Rory Kockott of Castres.
