Wenger's outburst followed a 1-1 draw at West Bromwich Albion on Monday.

Wenger was incensed at Calum Chambers being penalised for a handball and West Brom converting the resulting penalty to equalise.

Following a regulatory commission hearing, the FA said Wenger "admitted that his language and behavior in the match officials' changing room ... was abusive, improper and questioned the integrity of the match referee."

Wenger was also fined 40,000 pounds (NZ$75,600).
