Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger BANNED for three matches after referee comments

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger BANNED for three matches after referee comments

An FA statement confirmed the news on Friday, saying: "Arsene Wenger will serve a touchline ban for Arsenal's next three matches after he was charged with misconduct".

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger remains unrepentant over recent comments about penalty decisions against the Gunners after the FA asked the Frenchman to clarify his position.

'He was also fined £40,000'.

Wenger was furious with Dean awarding a penalty to the Baggies after former Gunner Kieran Gibbs fired the ball at defender Calum Chambers at clsoe range in the box.

He will also have to watch on from the stands for the first-leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final against Chelsea and the Premier League match against Bournemouth. D efender Bellerin later netted an equaliser in stoppage time.

In a press conference earlier this week Wenger said some referees were in the dark ages.

Wenger appeared to suggest after the Chelsea game that there may be a conspiracy against his team. On that front, nothing will change, never.

"You do not give, in the last minute of a game, a penalty like that".

"Imagine, I am 21 years in the game and what I've seen and heard in corridors - I'm surprised and shocked to be charged". "I have a right to have my opinion and I respect everybody's opinion". I feel it was a yellow card for Hazard.

The laws of the game clearly state that a manager shouldn't publicly question the integrity of match officials no matter how aggrieved they may feel about match decisions.

"You have your opinion and I have my opinion and I've been in the game long enough to know that everybody can have a different opinion". That's why I can also be demanding and what I want from them is to be at the top.
