Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has accepted a Football Association charge of improper conduct.
The Gunners boss has admitted using insulting and/or abusive language and behaviour towards the end of Arsenal’s 1-1 draw with Sunderland on Saturday.
Wenger was unhappy at the match officials after seeing Darren Bent snatch a last-gasp leveller for the Black Cats.
Having agreed that his actions were out of order, he must now serve a touchline ban and pay a fine.
A statement released on the FA’s official website read: “Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has admitted a charge of using insulting and/or abusive language and behaviour amounting to improper conduct.
“Wenger has accepted the standard sanction of an £8,000 fine and a one-match touchline ban which will be served with immediate effect at Arsenal’s League Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur this evening (Tuesday).
“The charge related to Wenger’s conduct towards match officials at the conclusion of Arsenal’s match against Sunderland on 18th September.”
