Arsenal won't take action after Wenger fines list reaches media

Arsenal won't be taking action after a list of fines drawn up by manager Arsene Wenger made its way to the media this week.

The Daily Mail says a document, printed on Arsenal headed paper, detailing a list of rules for Arsene Wenger's players and the cash penalty for breaking those specific laws has gone viral on the internet after a fan, who is understood to be an acquaintance of the Gunners' doctor Gary O'Driscoll, took a photo of the fines sheet during a tour of the training ground before posting it on a file-sharing website.

The supporter believed only his friends and himself would be privy to the picture. O'Driscoll and the supporter are said to be distraught the document has circulated so rapidly.

Arsenal are understandably disappointed the file has been made public but feel the situation is merely a result of unforeseen circumstances and will not open an internal review of their security measures.

German defender Per Mertesacker is Wenger's debt collector, responsible for rounding up the cash among his team-mates, with fines doubled if they are not settled in seven days.
