Arsene asks for inquiry into Fab abuse

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has urged UEFA to launch an inquiry after captain Cesc Fabregas had missiles thrown at him by Villarreal fans during Tuesday’s Champions League encounter. The Gunners' skipper was jeered at and vilified throughout the tie by the home support, and was bombarded with coins and paper boxes when attempting to take corner kicks. Although he was not directly struck by the falling debris, Fabregas removed one of the offending objects from the pitch and showed the evidence to Norwegian referee Tom Henning Ovrebo. But Wenger is appalled by the events and has suggested that UEFA launch an investigation into the poor behaviour of the Villarreal fans. “I seen that there were coins or boxes thrown at him, but I have not spoken with him about it yet," he said. “Certainly UEFA will make an inquiry and make the right decision.” The Gunners left El Madrigal in pole position to reach the Champions League semi-finals, after Emmanuel Adebayor’s sublime equaliser cancelled out Marcus Senna’s earlier long-range thunderbolt to leave the tie delicately poised at 1-1.
