Mikel Arteta Charged By FA Following Post-Match Rant At Officials After Arsenal FC Defeat To Newcastle

Arteta was livid after Anthony Gordon’s winning goal for Newcastle survived three separate VAR checks.

The Spaniard said it was an “absolute disgrace” and he was “sick to be part of this” as he tore into officials.

“We have to talk about the result because you have to talk about how they help these goals stand up, and it's incredible,” said Arteta. “I feel embarrassed. I feel sick to be part of this.

“But I have to be the one now coming here to try to defend the club and please ask for help because it's an absolute disgrace that this goal is allowed, it's an absolute disgrace.”

Arteta has now been charged by the FA. It is alleged his comments constitute misconduct as they are insulting towards match officials and bring the game into disrepute. He has until Tuesday next week to respond to the charge.
