Arsene Wenger will accept FA charge


Arsene Wenger says he is “big enough” to admit it was wrong of him to push Anthony Taylor and will accept his FA charge.

The English FA slammed Wenger for his misconduct following Arsenal’s 2-1 win over Burnley on Sunday.

The Frenchman was sent to the stands, with Arsenal leading 1-0, by referee Jon Moss after allegedly using abusive language towards Taylor before shoving the fourth official as he walked down the tunnel.

He was incensed after an injury-time penalty was awarded to the Clarets that Andre Gray duly scored, and had wanted to see out the rest of the match but was told to move further away from the pitch, which led to the incident.

When asked if he would accept the charge, Wenger answered: “Yes, I answered that in the press conference, I have little more to add. I am big enough to stand up for what I do.

“When I don’t behave like I think I should behave, I am big enough to say I am not right.

“I’m a passionate guy and I believe that I am completely committed in my job and want to win the football games.”

Wenger’s ire at having conceded a late penalty was tempered as a result of Alexis Sanchez scoring in the eighth minute of injury time to seal the win.
