Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been charged by the FA for misconduct, following his behaviour at the club’s open top bus parade on Sunday as the Gunners celebrated a second-successive FA Cup title.
Wilshere become an Arsenal hero as he was videoed leading a heap of anti-Tottenham Hotspur chants, which featured explicit words and caused a stir on social media. Though in truth, it’s no different to the goings on at football grounds across the country weekly.
A statement from the Football Association read:
“It is alleged his conduct in making and/or inciting certain comments during the club’s open bus trophy tour was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.”
Wilshere is said to have been warned for similar behaviour at the parade last year, where Arsenal ended a nine-year trophy drought with a dramatic 3-2 victory over Hull City.
The 23-year-old midfielder was also spoken to by Arsenal staff and reminded of his responsibilities, as a tirade of responses plagued the media.
Whilst the general consensus amongst Arsenal fans is that he did nothing wrong, and some rival fans agree, Wilshere was undoubtably walking a very slippy slope.
Do you think the action was unwarranted?
