Wenger gets four-match touchline ban

28 January 2017, 05:45

London - Arsenal Manager, Arsene Wenger has been given a four-match touchline ban and 25 000 pounds fine after accepting a Football Association charge of misconduct for his misbehavior in the win over Burnley.

Wenger, 67, was charged with verbally abusing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor after being sent off.

He will miss Saturday’s FA Cup tie against Southampton and Premier League games against Watford, Chelsea and Hull.

Wenger will be back for the Premier League trip to Liverpool on March 4.

The Frenchman reacted angrily to Burnley being awarded a 93rd-minute penalty at Emirates Stadium on Sunday, one they scored to level at 1-1.

After being sent to the stands by referee Jon Moss, Wenger moved away from the pitch but stood at the tunnel entrance and refused to move as he tried to watch the remaining few minutes of Sunday’s match.

As Taylor encouraged him to move away, Wenger was seen to push back against him.

Arsenal were then given a penalty of their own, which was converted by Alexis Sanchez.

Immediately after the match, Wenger apologised, saying: “I should have shut up – I apologise for not having done that.

“It was nothing malicious. I should have kept my control, even if it was in a hectic time.”
