Cologne and Peru striker Claudio Pizarro lands Disney movie role

Restricted to just four appearances for Cologne this season, veteran striker Claudio Pizarro has apparently found a part-time job to keep himself amused.

The 39-year-old Peru international has landed a supporting voiceover role in the German-language version of Disney's latest animated offering, "Coco."

The movie tells the story of a young Mexican boy who gets draw into the netherworld during his country's Day of the Dead celebrations.

So Cologne fans sat in the Arsenal end? Time to debate fan segregation

The takeover of North London by German fans and the subsequent chaos at the Arsenal vs. Cologne Europa League match on Thursday night throws up wider issues surrounding the behaviour and perception of football supporters in England.

Reaction to the events at the Emirates has been mixed. Some commentators have interpreted the chaos around and inside the stadium as a dangerous and a throwback to the days when violence stalked the game. Others have lauded the passion of the German supporters and used...

Cologne's passionate support give English fans a taste of own medicine

Mark Ogden discusses whether British clubs would receive similar coverage had their fans behaved the same as Cologne's fans during the Europa League match against Arsenal.

The biggest surprise about the fact so many Cologne supporters attempted to get inside the Emirates for the Europa League tie against Arsenal on Thursday night is how much of a surprise it was.

Cologne's travelling fan invasion had been well flagged-up in the days and weeks before the fixture.

It was a long night for Arsenal but one that may give great heart to manager Arsene Wenger. After kickoff was delayed by an hour following safety concerns caused by the sheer volume of travelling Cologne fans, Wenger's team were almost as late in finding their step.

Cologne fans make themselves heard in London before Arsenal clash

Cologne supporters are making the most of their first European match in 25 years against Arsenal.

It's fair to say that Cologne fans are thoroughly excited about the prospect of taking on Arsenal in the Europa League.

Indeed, on the day of the game, it was reported that every bank in the German city had ran out of British currency due to the influx of fans making the trip to the Emirates Stadium.

And so, numbering some 20,000 strong, the travelling supporters created quite a scene as they marched through the streets of London before the match.

The fans can be seen trudging up Noel...

Arsenal's Cologne test in Europa League against stalwart Peter Stoger

"[Having] our coach is a huge stroke of luck for us, and I have already said I would be happy if Peter Stoger could become our Arsene Wenger," Cologne's vice president Toni Schumacher said recently.

The idea has been mooted for a while. Stoger, though, doesn't really take it seriously. At the start of his fifth season in charge, he reckons the chances of remaining at the club for more than 20 years is nonexistent, but joked: "By Cologne standards, I am Wenger already."

Stoger has been...
