Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has denied a Football Association charge of improper conduct relating to comments he allegedly made after his side's defeat to Manchester United last month.
The French tactician was left infuriated by several incidents in the 2-0 reverse at Old Trafford on October 24 and made his feelings known in post-match interviews.
Arsene Wenger has been found guilty of improper conduct by The FA and fined £15,000.
The punishment relates to Wenger's comments made concerning Manchester United striker Ruud van Nistelrooy after their match with Arsenal at Old Trafford.
Wenger was furious with the Dutch striker and accused him of being a cheat - words that have not gone down well at Soho Square.
"I said what I said about what was happening on the day of the game," he stated.
"Maybe I translated it in clumsy words but the FA found him guilty and suspended him for three games so you cannot say he didn't cheat the rules.
"How would you describe that? What do you say? Explain to me?
"Was it an expensive sentence? No. I said what I had to say and nothing has changed.
"I knew it would cost some money. It is down to the FA to spend the money now.
"I take my responsibilities seriously after the game and I say what I feel I want to say.
"If you cheat with the rules I cannot find another word. In England it's a word you cannot say. I don't know why."
