Arsene Wenger won't be punish for diving accusations against Raheem Sterling


Arsene Wenger won't be facing any disciplinary action from the English FA for his comments regarding Manchester City's forward Raheem Sterling during our Premier League game with the table toppers.

The French manager accused the England international of diving to win a penalty, during Arsenal' 3-1 loss to City on the weekend, after coming into contact with Nacho Monreal in the Gunners' box.

"I believe it was no penalty," Wenger said to BBC after the match.

"We know that Sterling dives well, and he does that [win the penalty] very well."

The French boss also added: "You can accept it if City win in a normal way, they are a good side, but the way it happened is unacceptable."

According to Sky Sports, Wenger will not face any penalty for his outburst as he is understood to have danced on the line, but did not overstep.

The longtime Arsenal gaffer also disagreed with a few other refereeing decisions steming from the game. However, as things stand, Wenger remains on the good side of the FA.

The result leaves us some 12 points behind Premier League leaders Manchester City, and we have a tough challenge coming up after the international break, with an upcoming match against arch-rivals Tottenham Hotspur set to follow.
