​THREE match touchline ban for Arsenal boss Wenger

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has received a three-match touchline ban and been fined £40,000 for misconduct relating to his behaviour in the referee's changing room after Sunday's game against West Brom.

Wenger admitted that his language and behaviour in the match officials' changing room after the 1-1 Premier League draw at West Brom last Sunday was abusive, improper and questioned the integrity of the match referee.

A Football Association statement said the Frenchman admitted "his language and behaviour was abusive, improper and questioned the integrity of the match referee".

Wenger was angered by referee Mike Dean after his side's draw at The Hawthorns, where Calum Chambers conceded a late penalty for handball.
