Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been handed a three-match UEFA touchline ban and fined 40,000 Euros (£33,352) by UEFA's control and disciplinary body.

Wenger faced a charge of improper conduct relating to Arsenal's Champions League round of 16 second leg tie against AC Milan at the Emirates Stadium on March 6.

The suspension applies to the next three UEFA club competition matches for which Wenger will be eligible. Arsenal have three days in which to lodge an appeal.
