ARSERNAL - Mustafi celebration faces potential FA

Published on: 03 September 2018

Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi could be fined by the FA after celebrating by making the shape of the Albanian double-headed eagle against Cardiff City. The International Football Association Board's laws of the game state that players must refrain from "using offensive, insulting or abusive language and/or gestures" or "gesturing in a provocative, derisory or inflammatory way". Celebrations also should not reference "any local, regional, national or international political party/organisation/group, etc" or "any specific political act/event". The FA will then decide on punishment and can sanction either the player or team if they decide an offence has been committed.
