Wenger Faces Touchline Ban After Burnley Incident


By Adebayo Williams

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could be banned after he was sent to the tunnel for yelling at the fourth official during his side's dramatic victory over Burnley. Wenger had pushed the official's arm away as he tried to gesture the Frenchman to the stands on referee Jon Moss's order.

He also appeared to nudge the official's back as stewards prepared to step between the pair. Already, Wenger was facing a ban after being sent to the stands but his actions with the official could extend the length of the ban.

The Football Association will be critical in its judgement as Moss had been earlier involved in an incident with a manager. In November, he was in charge when Manchester United's Jose Mourinho kicked a bottle and was sent to the stands.
