EPL: FA opens investigation after Arsenal’s 4-2 win at Aston Villa
The Arsenal and Aston Villa staff incident during the Gunners’ 4-2 victory on Saturday is being investigated by the Football Association, FA.
In the last seconds of the game at Villa Park, Victor Manas of Villa and Arsenal pundit Miguel Molina got into a fight.
At that point, Mikel Arteta’s team led 3-2 thanks to the strike from Jorginho that deflected off Emi Martinez’s head.
The FA declared on Monday that it is investigating the incident that occurred in the stands.
Manas, who reportedly worked at the Emirates under Unai Emery, is said to have been enraged at Molina’s celebrations in the press box.
Molina ultimately departed the media area when stewards intervened to defuse the tense situation. His ejection was denied by sources.
Arteta when asked about the incident after the match said:
“No (I haven’t spoken to Miguel Molina). Like anything that happens in the stands, we will look at it and address it and take action if necessary.”
