BREAKING NEWS: Arsene Wenger To Face Three-match Ban For Misconduct
According to news report from Sky Sports, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger have been charged by FA to face a three-match touchline ban for misconduct.
Wenger has also been fined £40,000 over comments he made about the refereeing of last Sunday’s 1-1 draw at West Brom.
It would be recalled that Referee Mike Dean awarded West Brom a late penalty for handball against Arsenal defender Calum Chambers during Sunday’s match after which West Brom’s Jay Rodriguez converted the penalty to earn his side a point.
Wenger expressed his displeasure with the referees’ decision when he spoke to the media after the game and was subsequently charged for post-match remarks that he made in the referees’ changing room.
The FA statement on Friday read: “Arsene Wenger will serve a touchline ban for Arsenal’s next three matches after he was charged with misconduct.
“It follows an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing today at which the Arsenal manager admitted that his language and behaviour in the match officials’ changing room after the West Brom game on Sunday was abusive, improper and questioned the integrity of the match referee.
“He was also fined £40,000.”
The ban will count from Sunday’s FA Cup tie at Nottingham Forest, the first leg of the Carabao Cup semi against Chelsea next week, to a Premier League clash with Bournemouth on 14 January.
In a separate case, Wenger has also been asked by the governing body to provide his observations on what he said about a pair of key penalty decisions which went against the Gunners over the festive period.
