Fan rushed to hospital after falling off roof at Arsenal protests against owners

A fan has been rushed to hospital after falling off a roof at the Arsenal protests against the club’s owners on Friday evening.

Thousands of Gunners fans made their feelings about the Kroenke family known ahead of their game against Everton at the Emirates Stadium, with Mikel Arteta’s side losing 1-0.

Everton secure their first Premier League win at Arsenal since January 1996 courtesy of Bernd Leno’s disastrous own goal; meaning that the Toffees move to within three points of the Champions League places in the Premier League table.

However on the outside, supporters demanded that American billionaire Stan Kroenke sells the club following his failed attempt to take them into the European Super League this week.

The protests was loud and crowded, but according to The Athletic there was one worrying incident when one supporter fell from a tall height.

The police and ambulance crew confirmed that he was treated at the scene and later taken to hospital, thankfully his condition is not believed to be life-threatening.

The Daily Mail adds that the male had a head injury and a broken leg after jumping from the club’s superstore.

“The fans have to express, that is their right and they have to do it freely,” the Spaniard said.

“For me, what it shows is the power and the capacity when they show that determination and passion to achieve what they want.

“If we can use this with our fans to support the team, I think that will be incredibly powerful and it will make us much, much stronger.

“So it’s time to leave them to express themselves and now, somehow, we have to engage them again, get them closer to us and believing in what we do.

“If we do that, we’ll be in a much better place.”

It comes after Kroenke’s son Josh apologised for the farce surrounding the Super League, writing: “Leadership is about recognising when you are wrong, correcting and apologising.

“We asked ourselves, what is worse: European Super League, or European Super League without Arsenal?

“We also asked ourselves what do the fans want? The global fan wants Arsenal vs Barcelona as often as possible. English fans want to see more big matches, but you still want your cold nights in Stoke.

“We got it wrong. It was never our intention to harm English football.”

Man of the match: Richarlison.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta: “We were the better team but there are certain decisions that we can’t control. To disallow a penalty 15 seconds before – [we had] eight or nine touches [after Nicolas Pepe was offside] – I saw it 10 times and I don’t get it. It can be taken the way they want. Zero control. Somebody has to explain that.

“We were the better team. We lacked some clear-cut chances and the edge in the final third. They are very well organised but we conceded the goal in the wrong moment and when we had the penalty but it wasn’t given.”

On Bernd Leno’s own goal: “It’s an own goal and we know we have to do better.”

Everton boss Carlo Ancelotti: “It’s a good result, and an important one. We are still attached to the top of the table. We needed that. We keep fighting, we played a good game with difficulties.

“Defensively we were good, I am satisfied. To be honest it should have been a draw, Arsenal had more control of the ball. We were not clinical in possession. We deserved to win our last few games which were draws so we have those points back.

“Jordan Pickford did really well with a good save at the end, he was comfortable, good with the ball. After five games without a win it was an important victory. The race will be decided on the last game.”
