Arsenal being fined by The FA seems to be a regular occurrence this season and it’s happened again today…
Members of the Arsenal and Aston Villa backroom teams have been charged by the FA after failing to control their behaviour during the Gunners’ 4-2 victory at Villa Park in February.
Villa head of performance analysis Victor Manas and Arsenal technical analyst coach Miguel Molina have both been charged for the incident which occurred in the press box after Arsenal score their third goal in injury time.
Both individuals have until Friday, 31 March to respond to the charges.
It is alleged that Manas’ behaviour in the 94th minute was improper and/or violent. Molina, meanwhile, is said to have acted and/or spoken in an improper and/or abusive and/or insulting manner in the same minute.
Both individuals have also been charged with improper behaviour in the tunnel following the end of the Premier League match.
When Jorginho’s shot hit the crossbar and went in off Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez to make it 3-2, there was a confrontation in the stand which involved the two analysts.
