An independent Regulatory Commission has found the charge against Mikel Arteta for an alleged breach of FA Rule E3.1 to be not proven. 

The manager was charged following various comments in media interviews after Arsenal’s Premier League game against Newcastle United on Saturday 4 November. 

It was alleged that his comments constituted misconduct in that they were insulting towards match officials and/or detrimental to the game and/or brought the game into disrepute.

The Regulatory Commission came to its decision following a hearing and the full written reasons for this can be found below.
