Arsene Wenger could request personal hearing in bid to minimise FA misconduct charge

Arsene Wenger could request a personal hearing in a bid to minimise the punishment he faces for his FA misconduct charge. 

The Frenchman was sanctioned after pushing fourth official Anthony Taylor and insulting referee Jon Moss towards the end of Sunday’s 2-1 win at Emirates Stadium.

Wenger is yet to respond and although he is unlikely to contest the charge itself, he could try to talk down the severity of the suspension.

A touchline ban would enable him to conduct pre and post-match duties, as well as speaking to the team at half-time, but a stadium ban would cut off contact completely on matchday.

“It was nothing bad. I said something that you hear every day in football but overall nine times out of 10, you’re not sent to the stands for that.”
