Cologne ban Boyz fan group

Bundesliga club Cologne have banned a fan group from their games after pitch invasions during their derby with Borussia Monchengladbach.

Cologne have moved swiftly following trouble in Saturday's derby defeat to Borussia Monchengladbach - banning the Boyz fan group from future matches and removing their status as an official supporters' club.

Following Granit Xhaka's late winner at Borussia-Park, sections of the away support entered the field wearing boiler suits with smoke bombs and flares also thrown from the crowd.

Cologne - who are likely to face sanctions from the DFB - stated that Saturday's scenes "intentionally damaged the club".

The Bundesliga club also confirmed members of the group would be denied access to home and away games as well as potentially being liable to further sanctions in future.
