Arsène Wenger could be facing a lengthy stadium ban after his latest run-in with the authorities at the Football Association.


The Frenchman was charged by the FA for his conduct following Arsenal's 1-1 draw against ​West Brom - where a controversial last-minute penalty prevented the Gunners from claiming all three points at the Hawthorns.

It is understood that Wenger, during a 30-minute 'cooling off' period after the game, confronted Mike Dean in the referees' changing room - an area which Wenger would only be allowed if he was given permission by the officials.


With Wenger's most recent run-in with the Football Association coming less than 12 months after he received a touchline ban for pushing an official, the Mirror report that 68-year-old could feel the full force of the FA if he is found guilty of his latest charges.


"​Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been charged following the West Bromwich Albion game on Sunday," an FA statement over Wenger's charges said. "It is alleged his language and/or behaviour in the match officials’ changing room after the game was abusive and/or improper and/or questioned the integrity of the match referee."

Wenger won't have time to worry over his latest charge just yet, with Arsenal getting ready for a ​Premier League clash with ​Chelsea on Wednesday. The two sides met on four occasions during 2017, with the Gunners getting the bragging rights on two occasions - including in the FA Cup final.
