Wenger fined for Pardew incident

December 14, 2006

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been fined £10,000, severely censured and warned about his future conduct by the Football Association after a disciplinary hearing relating to his clash with Alan Pardew.

Wenger had earlier admitted a charge of improper conduct for his aggressive and confrontational behaviour in an incident involving Pardew towards the end of the Hammers' 1-0 victory at Upton Park on November 5.

The two managers clashed on the touchline after Pardew celebrated Marlon Harewood's 89th-minute winner in front of Wenger.

Pardew was also charged in relation to the same incident. He has denied the charge and will have a personal hearing with an FA disciplinary commission.
