Arsene Wenger says he had in the past said more harsh words than he did during Arsenal's match with Burnley over the weekend.

He has also witnessed scenes where other managers did worse without any sanction, so he is in no way moved by the charge put forward to him by the FA.

The Frenchman used abusive language on fourth official Anthony Taylor before going on to push him after he was sent off by referee Jon Moss.

Speaking ahead of his side's FA Cup clash with Southampton on saturday, Wenger stated that his behaviour in the game against the Clarets on Sunday ranks nowhere high on the list of worst misconducts.

"You know, I have said much worse than I did here and you are not punished and I have heard much worse from other people," he said of his spat with the officials. "It depends as well on the circumstances. Sometimes some new level of problem you have all around."

Asked if he will accept the charge, he responded: "Yes, I've answered that in the press conference, there's not more to add. I've been in England for 20 years, I have seen a lot on the bench, as you certainly know."
