Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has been handed a three match along with a €40,000 fine for his comments after the 1-1 draw at Westbrom.
The Ban and Fine comes after comments Arsene Wenger made in the Officials’ dressing room at Westbrom after Mike Dean awarded a penalty to West brom for a handball by Callum Chambers. A decision which was somewhat controversial to say the least.
The Arsenal Boss will now miss games against Nottingham Forest (FA Cup), Chelsea (EFL) and Bournemouth(Premier League).
A statement from the FA 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.”
Arsene Wenger had said after the charge that he would appeal the decision after seeing a number of questionable decisions go against his side.
In addition, Wenger seems to be intent on a warpath with the FA following more critical comments following Arsenal’s 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
In the aftermath of the match, Wenger railed against the referee’s decision to award Chselsea a penalty in comments he made after the game against Chelsea.
