Arsene Wenger reveals what he should have done after being sent off

Despite tendering an apology for arguing and pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor during his side dramatic 2-1 win over Burnley on Sunday, January, 22, 2017, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could be facing a lengthy ban from the Football Association.

The 67-year-old French manager was livid when Burnley were awarded a stoppage-time penalty to equalize at the Emirates Stadium and it saw the former Nagoya Grampus 8 coach being sent off by referee Jon Moss.

Wenger has now expressed remorse for his action on the match officials on Sunday, January, 22, 2017.

''I thought I could watch it from the corridor [of the tunnel]. I regret everything. I should have shut up, gone in and gone home. I apologize for that.

''Look, it was nothing bad. I said something that you hear every day in football. Overall nine times out of ten you are not sent to the stands for that.

''If I am, I am, and I should have shut up completely. I was quite calm the whole game, more than usual. But just in the last two or three minutes… what I am particularly upset about, it is better I do not talk about that,'' Wenger said

The Football Association will now have to wait to see the referee's report regarding Wenger's dismissal before deciding on any action.
