UEFA opens disciplinary case against Wenger

UEFA has started disciplinary proceedings against Arsenal FC manager Arsène Wenger for not abiding by the decisions of the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body.

Disciplinary proceedings have been opened against Arsenal FC manager Arsène Wenger for not abiding by the decisions of the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body in relation to the one-match suspension he served during Tuesday's UEFA Champions League play-off game against Udinese Calcio.

According to the UEFA Disciplinary Regulations, a manager may not communicate with his team during the match for which he is suspended and may follow the game from the stands only.

Wenger was serving the suspension which the UEFA Control and Disciplinary Body handed down following the English team's round of 16 match at FC Barcelona in the same competition last season.

Arsenal won the play-off first leg against Udinese 1-0 in north London. The new disciplinary case will be discussed on Monday 22 August.
