Arsene Wenger Given Four-Match Ban By FA 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Jan 27, 2017 6:56 pm

Arsene Wenger has been given an immediate four-match touchline ban for remonstrating with officials in Arsenal's 2-1 win over Burnley.

Wenger will now be forced to sit in the stands for Arsenal’s FA Cup trip to Southampton on Saturday.

“It was alleged that in or around the 92nd minute, he [Wenger] used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official,” read an FA statement. “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 today [Friday 27 January 2017].”
