The England international took to Twitter to apologise for his actions on the club’s victory parade around north London in an open-top bus following their 4-0 win over Aston Villa at Wembley, but was surprised to face an FA charge.

However, he opted not to contest the charge and take a fine from the governing body.

Wilshere caused controversy on the parade when he 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”.

An FA statement on Wednesday read: “Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere has been fined £40,000 and severely warned as to his future conduct after admitting to a charge of misconduct.

“Wilshere was found guilty of making and/or inciting certain comments during the club’s open bus trophy tour after their FA Cup Final victory, with his conduct deemed to be improper and bringing the game into disrepute.”
