Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger has aged a four-match touchline ban and fined £25,000 for pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor during Arsenal’s win over Burnley.
The Frenchman was sent to the stands in injury time of the 2-1 victory after clashing with Taylor, towards whom he was also charged with using abusive or insulting language.
Wenger was also penalised for remaining in the tunnel area to watch the final minutes of the match.
As a result, he will not be in his technical area for the Gunners’ crucial Premier League fixture against Chelsea on February 4 as well as three other games.
Wenger will begin his suspension immediately, sitting in the stands for the FA Cup tie at Southampton on Saturday before Arsenal take on Watford, Chelsea and Hull City in the English top flight.
The incident in question occurred after he was sent off after complaining to referee Jon Moss about the awarding of a 93rd-minute penalty to Burnley, which Andre Gray converted to equalise before Alexis Sanchez netted a spot-kick of his own to seal a dramatic win for Arsenal.
After moving to stand in the tunnel amid a heated exchange with fourth official Taylor, Wenger appeared to push the official as he attempted to usher him away.
