ARSENE WENGER WILL ACCEPT MISCONDUCT CHARGES

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger says he will accept a Football Association misconduct charge for his behavior during the 2-1 league win over Burnley.

Wenger, 67, was charged with verbally abusing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor after being sent off in the closing stages of the game.

Wenger, who later apologised, says he will request a personal FA hearing.

“I’ve said what I have publicly and the rest will be more discreet,” he said. “I don’t know if I will be punished and how I will be punished.

“The only thing I can say is that when I was sent off I was surprised and then I was in the tunnel which is where I thought I could be.”

Arsene Wenger might face a touchline ban for the incident, besides a financial penalty.
