Arsene Wenger admits he was wrong, though he hopes to explain himself.
The Arsenal manager was filmed having a physical confrontation with officials in the tunnel after being sent off the bench during the Gunners’ 2-1 win over Burnley over the weekend.

Wenger, 67, says he will accept a misconduct charge from the Football Association, but hopes to discuss the issue with them. And to be fair, touch line incidents with officials aren’t exactly commonplace for him.
“When I don’t behave like I think I should behave, I am big enough to say I am not right. I’m a passionate guy and I believe that I am completely committed in my job and want to win football games.”
Wenger says he is not sure how he’ll be punished, though the BBC points to the two-match ban and accompanying $25,000 fine given to Alan Pardew for shoving an assistant referee.
Arsenal is on the road for an FA Cup match at Southampton on Saturday before hosting Watford in a Premier League match on Tuesday.
