Jack Wilshere Fined £40,000 For Mocking Spurs Fans

Jack Wilshere has accepted an FA misconduct charge for offensive chants about Tottenham Hotspur fans.

The Gunners midfielder led fans in three chants which mocked rival north London club fans during Arsenal’s FA Cup victory parade.

He later apologised and was spoken to by club staff.

The FA said in a statement: “Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere has been fined £40,000 and severely warned as to his future conduct after admitting to a charge of misconduct.

“Wilshere was found guilty of making and/or inciting certain comments during the club’s open bus trophy tour after their FA Cup Final victory, with his conduct deemed to be improper and bringing the game into disrepute.”

Arsenal defeated Aston Villa 4-0 at Wembley to secure a record 12th FA Cup triumph last month.
