Arsenal boss felt the best course of action was to serve a touchline ban than appeal a charge of misconduct from the Football Association. On Tuesday morning, the Arsenal manager admitted using insulting and/or abusive language and behaviour amounting to improper conduct following an incident at the end of his side's 1-1 draw at Sunderland at the weekend.
Wenger was fined £8,000 by the FA and also hit with a one-match touchline suspension which he served during Tuesday's 4-1 Carling Cup victory at Tottenham Hotspur.
"I accepted the FA charge because what I was charged with I did," said the Frenchman.
"I could not deny it, so that is why I took it. I could appeal, but thought it was better to get it behind me.
"It was quite enjoyable to watch it from upstairs. Communication was a problem sometimes, but overall it went well."
