The Football Association has called on Mikel Arteta and Arsenal on their comment against VAR in their 1 – 0 loss to Newcastle over the weekend.
Arteta spoke angrily against VAR on account of their loss to Newcastle on Saturday, citing the decision to allow Anthony Gordon’s goal to stand as a disgrace and embarrassing.
While some section believe Arteta should be punished, arsenal stood by the manager giving their own statement as VAR has not been fair to the club on most accounts.
Arsenal are at risk of being punished and the FA has officially written to both Arteta and Arsenal to seek their observation regarding their public remarks.
The FA may decide to issue a charge, formal warning or take no charge depending on how the talks go.
Arsenal have three working days to reply and the FA will also have three days to issue a charge or not.
Gabriel Matenelli’s disallowed goal at old Trafford, Ivan Toney’s equalizer in a 1 – 1 draw against Brentford and Mateo Kovacic avoiding red card against arsenals in a 1 – 0 win against Man City are all issues arsenals can raise to show how unfair the VAR has been to the club.
