Kenny Dalglish walked over to Arsene Wenger where a Sky Sports camera was stood and swore at Wenger. Both people were guilty of breaking Law 12 and both people’s “abusive/offensive language” was audible to the viewing public at home.
If you have not heard back from the FA, contact the Independent Football Ombudsman.
