The Gunners boss has been banned for three games by UEFA

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been given a three-match UEFA touchline ban and has also been fined 40,000 Euros (£33,352) by UEFA’s control and disciplinary body but the Frenchman is likely to appeal.

The ban relates to the Gunners Champions League round of 16 second leg tie against AC Milan at the Emirates Stadium on March 6 and applies to the next three UEFA club competition matches for which Wenger will be eligible.

Arsenal have three days in which to lodge an appeal and Wenger hinted that he would do so prior to it being announced.

“I don’t know if I am banned but if I am, it is unjustified and I will appeal,” he said.
