Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger’s proposed touchline ban has been delayed by UEFA following the Frenchman’s appeal.
Wenger was handed a further two-match ban after communicating with his bench in last week’s 1-0 win over Udinese at Emirates Stadium whilst he was in the stands for a previous sanction.
The Gunners boss was to again be in the stands for tomorrow night’s second leg in Udine but UEFA have granted him permission to be on the bench.
"Following the play-off first leg match between Arsenal and Udinese last week, the Uefa control and disciplinary body yesterday banned Wenger from carrying out his duties at Arsenal's next two Uefa competition matches and fined the club €10,000 (£8,743).
"Without today's decision by the appeals body, the manager's suspension would have taken effect for the play-off second leg at Udinese.”
