Arsenal manager Arsène Wenger will miss two matches

Arsene Wenger

UEFA said on Monday that Wenger will be forced to miss the club’s first two Champions League group games, against Borussia Dortmund and Olympiakos this month.

Wenger breached a previous one-match ban when he relayed messages to the Arsenal dugout from the grandstand during the first leg of the club’s Champions League playoff against Udinese in London. The club appealed the new ban, and UEFA agreed to defer its decision until after the second leg of the playoff.
