Arsenal manager Unai Emery facing FA investigation for kicking a bottle at Brighton fans
Arsenal boss Unai Emery could face action from the Football Association after he kicked a water bottle into the crowd at Brighton.
The Gunners boss appeared the boot a bottle in frustration during his side’s 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium on Boxing Day, which sailed into the stands.
Emery admitted after the game that he accidentally hit a Seagulls fan and apologised to him.
The boss walked over to the supporter at full-time to shake his hand – which was apparently well received by home supporters, who applauded the gesture.
But it is understood the FA are still looking into the incident to decide whether or not to take any possible further action.
Former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho received a touchline ban for kicking a bottle of water against West Ham in 2016.
He was also sent to the stands during that game for his reaction to referee Jonathan Moss’ decision to book Paul Pogba for diving.
He admitted improper conduct and picked up a one-match suspension.
However, Mourinho did escape a UEFA ban after throwing a crate of drinks bottles to the ground in celebration of United’s 1-0 win over Young Boys in the Champions League earlier this season.
