Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was sent to the stands in the 2-1 win over Burnley after labeling referee John Moss a ‘cheat’, according to reports.
Wenger, who was ordered to leave the touch-line by Moss, was being ushered down the tunnel by fourth official Taylor when the Arsenal manager reacted angrily and has now been charged by the FA for his actions.
A steward came between Wenger and Taylor as the Frenchman appeared to get physical after refusing to leave the tunnel in the dying moments of the Premier League clash at the Emirates stadium.
It has now emerged that Moss showed the Frenchman a red card after he branded the referee a ‘cheat’ following the decision to award Burnley a 93rd minute penalty, according to the Evening Standard.
Following the altercation, Wenger apologised for his unacceptable behaviour in a post-match press conference but that isn’t expected be enough to avoid a touch-line ban.
‘I didn’t see any penalty from outside but I should have shut up and I apologise, even if I was frustrated,’ Wenger said after the match.
