Jack Wilshere has been charged with misconduct by the Football Association (FA) for foul-mouthed chants aimed at Tottenham during Arsenal’s FA Cup celebrations on Sunday.
The England midfielder caused controversy as Arsenal toured north London in an open-top bus following their 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the final at Wembley.
Wilshere grabbed a microphone and addressed fans with the question: “What do you we think of Tottenham?”
The supporters responded with “s***”, before Wilshere asked: “What do we think of s***?”
Fans replied with “Tottenham”.
Wilshere received criticism for his actions but later apologised in a post on Twitter.
An FA statement read: “Jack Wilshere has been charged with misconduct in relation to Arsenal’s FA Cup celebrations on Sunday 31 May 2015.
“It is alleged his conduct in making and/or inciting certain comments during the club’s open bus trophy tour was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute.
“The player has until 6pm on 10 June 2015 to respond to the charge.”
