Just as it was widely expected, Arsenal boss, Arsene Wenger found himself getting punished for his recent incident during Gunners’ 2-1 victory over Burnley.
The French manager was charged four match sideline ban by the England FA as he caught pushing the fourth official in protest of a penalty decision given against his team in that Sunday game.
Aside from receiving that touchline ban decision, Wenger also received 25,000 pounds fine because of that poor conduct he committed towards the official.
Already admitting his mistakes in previous press conference, the veteran tactician pretty much accepted any decision that the FA given towards him.
Wenger himself already stated his apology because of his poor behavior that day, pretty much acknowledging that he was definitely in the wrong.
That decision means that the manager won’t be able to accompany his team on the sideline starting from this weekend’s FA Cup battle against Southampton up till February 11 tie against Hull City.
However, that can still change should there’s a tie in their FA Cup clash, which means a reply will be scheduled instead, so Wenger will be available for their league encounter with Hull.
It remains to be seen whether the tactician’s absence in that Gunners’ bench will give any significant effect for their performance in upcoming games, especially their big game against Chelsea next weekend.
