The English Football Association has Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta until Friday to respond to his charge for comments he made after Arsenal’s defeat by Newcastle earlier this month.

Arteta had called the VAR’s decision to allow Anthony Gordon’s goal during Arsenal’s 1-0 defeat at St James’ Park “an absolute disgrace”.

LagosPost reported that an investigation by an independent panel found the goal decision accurate.

Arteta was charged with a breach of FA rule E3.1 and had until Tuesday to offer his response.

However, that deadline has now been extended until Friday after the Gunners’ requested for an extension.

During the postmatch interview, Arteta who was irritated at the decision, said: “You have to talk about how the hell did this goal stand up? Incredible. I feel embarrassed.

“I have to now come in here and try to defend the club and please ask for help because it’s an absolute disgrace that this goal is allowed. An absolute disgrace.”
