FA Reveals Reasons For Wenger's Touchline Ban

The English Football Association revealed their motives for awarding Arsene Wenger a fine and a three-match suspension.
The Arsenal manager was fuming after Mike Dean gave a late penalty to West Bromwich Albion and questioned the impartiality of the referee.

In written reasons published by the English FA, Dean's match report states:
"As we've entered the dressing room after the game Mr Wenger stood behind us in the doorway and told the West Brom steward to 'let him in'.

"He was very aggressive leaning towards me, pointing aggressively at me saying 'you're not honest' on numerous occasions. I replied 'so you're calling me a cheat'.

"He replied 'I maintain what I say, you're not honest'.

"He then said 'you've done this to us many times before, you're supposed to be professional, you're a disgrace'. He was then ushered out of the room by the West Brom safety officer."
The FA concluded that the Frenchman 'was then ushered out of the room by the West Brom safety officer'.
