The aftermath of a manager being charge with misconduct and also accepting the charge will be taking its measure of Arsenal’s manager Arsene Wenger, as he will be receiving up a three-match touchline ban from the Football Association.
After being denied victory by West Brom with a late equaliser from Jay Rodriguez, following foul in a Penalty spot from Calum Chambers which saw the match ending in a 1-1 draw.
However, with the famous foul, Wenger has been questioned on his decision to start Chamber, who has not seen a single Premier League match this season with his first start coming from the draw with the Hawthorns.
With the draw, according to Sky Sports, the Gunners team will be without their long term manager for three matches and will be prepared to pay a fine of £40,000 after he was caught to have used abusive and improper language towards the referee.
Wenger will be missing three matches, with the first being FA Cup tie with Nottingham Forest, second being the semi-finals first leg of the Carabao Cup against Chelsea and Premier League match with AFC Bournemouth.
“I think the referee has not even seen it, he’s not seen it,” said Wenger, via Independent.
“That’s my opinion, but he will tell you he has seen it. But we have to live with the decision and deal with it and swallow it and go for the next game.
“I’m angry because we see and see the same things again. We fought very hard years ago for the referees to become professional and yet we see no improvement and you can not say a word against it because they are untouchable.”
The Gunners manager also talked about the Penalty given to Chelsea in Arsenal 2-2 draw on Wednesday, he said: “We got again a farcical decision and mentally we were shocked. Then we could have lost the game but we had the resources to come back, and in the end maybe it’s a fair result.
“When you come here you see football, and unfortunately the games are always spoiled by factors you can’t master. We can only continue to play the way we want to play, and hope at one stage things will go for us.”
