The Arsenal manager was caught by cameras pushing Taylor who was the fourth official for the game.

In a statement released by the Football Association, it was revealed that Wenger twice told the fourth official to ‘f*** off’ before saying 'You are dishonest to your federation'.

The incident came after he (Wenger) was sent off for protesting a late penalty awarded to Burnley in the game.

The Frenchman stood at the entrance of the tunnel after he was sent off and pushed Taylor who was ordering him off to the changing room.

Wenger, however, apologised after the game, saying he 'regretted' his use of language and was 'very unhappy' with his behaviour.

He personally apologised to both officials after the game and claimed he was confused on here to go after he was sent off from the bench.
