Cologne slam Arsenal for Emirates chaos in statement: Where was your security?”

"We waited patiently in our dressing room but what was hard was for me was I had all kind of plans to think about at some stage".

He wants the player in his team and when he's nearly forced to play as he was then he comes up with the goods and there's no doubt he is still the outstanding player in that Arsenal team - and boy do they need him now because it's a massive game coming up at the weekend as well.

"I don't know how they [Cologne supporters] were able to infiltrate our fans but they did it very well".

The match eventually went ahead with an estimated 8,000 Cologne fans dotted round the stadium, including 2,900 with legitimate tickets.

They also took over an area of Oxford Street before majority moved on to Arsenal's Emirates Stadium in the north of the city.

"Due to the enormous demand for tickets, it would have been sensible, not least for security reasons, to allow more than the allocated 5% of stadium capacity to the guest fans".

"Please note visiting supporters that purchase a ticket in the home end for this fixture are likely to be ejected from the stadium", a statement on their website read.

Hundreds of Koln supporters were being held behind a police cordon as order was being restored in and around the away turnstiles.

"I'm the coach, my job is the team, my job is football not the fans".
