ARSENE WENGER APOLOGISES FOR FOURTH OFFICIAL PUSH

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has apologised for pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor during his side’s last-gasp 2-1 win against Burnley at the Emirates on Sunday.

The Frenchman was sent off after protesting Jon Moss’s decision to award the visiting side a penalty.

Wenger pushed away fourth official Anthony Taylor before going the tunnel.

Asked to explain why he had been sent off, Wenger said: “I regret everything. I should have shut up and gone in and gone home, basically.

“I apologise for that. There’s nothing bad. I said something you hear everyday in football but nine times out of 10 you’re not sent to the stand for that. But if I am, I am and I should have shut up completely.”

The FA might impose a touchline ban on Wenger for the incident.
