Arsenal and England midfielder Jack Wilshere is said to be fuming with the FA after being hit with a misconduct charge for his anti-Tottenham chant during the FA Cup trophy parade last weekend, Mirror Sport reports.
The 23-year-old is in hot water with the Football Association after his expletive-laiden song about the Gunners’ North London rivals and has until June 10th to respond.

If found guilty he is likely to miss the beginning of next season through suspension, meaning he would be forced to sit out the curtain-opener against Chelsea in the Community Shield at the start of August.
However, Wilshere is said to be disappointment with the charge as he believes he has not broken the code of conduct for England players that was arranged in 2012.

The midfielder took to social media and apologised via his official Twitter account on Monday afternoon but that wasn’t enough to avoid the charge and will now focus on the national team’s friendly against Republic of Ireland this Sunday before deciding what to do next.
