The Associated PressLONDON (AP) — Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger was charged on Tuesday for his conduct inside the match officials’ changing room following a Premier League game in which his team conceded a contentiously awarded penalty.
Wenger’s language and behavior after Arsenal’s 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Sunday was “abusive and/or improper and/or questioned the integrity of the match referee,” the English Football Association said.
Wenger was incensed at the awarding of a penalty against Arsenal for handball by Calum Chambers. West Brom converted the penalty in the 89th minute for the equalizer.
After saying the decision was “difficult to accept,” Wenger added that he thought referees “do not work enough,” having been a major driver behind making them professional.
