Wenger Gets Four-Match Ban

share on:

Arsene Wenger has been slapped with a four-match touchline ban for pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor last weekend.

The ban which will be served with immediate effect will see him miss the matches against Southampton, Watford, Chelsea and Hull City and also pay a £25,000 fine.

The Gunners will not be appealing the decision which was made by an independent panel and announced by the Football Association on Friday.

A statement from the FA reads: “Arsene Wenger has been given a four-match touchline ban with immediate effect after he was charged for misconduct following Arsenal’s game against Burnley on Sunday 22 January 2017.

“It was alleged that in or around the 92nd minute, he used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official.

“It was further alleged that following his dismissal from the technical area, his behaviour in remaining in the tunnel area and making physical contact with the fourth official amounted to improper conduct.

“The Arsenal manager, who was also fined £25,000, admitted the charge and requested a personal hearing which took place before an Independent Regulatory Commission [on Friday].”
