Arsenal boss Unai Emery has been fined £8,000 after accepting an FA charge of improper conduct after kicking a bottle which hit a Brighton fan on Boxing Day.
Emery apologised to the fan immediately after the incident, which was not mentioned in the referee’s match report, and once again at full time in their 1-1 draw at the Amex Stadium.
Speaking after the incident, the Spaniard said: “I said to them I’m sorry.
“It wasn’t hard but it touched one supporter.
“I kicked the bottle in frustration but not at the supporters, not with this intention. It’s circumstances. I apologised. I hope it’s the end of the matter, yes.”
