Arsene Wenger charged by the FA
Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has been charged by the Football Association in relation to verbally abusing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor during match against Burnley on Sunday.
Wenger was seen to push Taylor after being sent off late on during the 2-1 win at Emirates Stadium. He had been dismissed by referee Jon Moss for reacting angrily to a 93rd-minute penalty awarded to Burnley.
An FA statement said "It is alleged that in or around the 92nd minute, Wenger used abusive and/or insulting words towards the fourth official. It is 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."
In 2012, Alan Pardew, who was Newcastle manager at the time, was fined £20,000 and given a two-match touchline ban for pushing an assistant referee during a game against Tottenham.
