The 23-year-old England international took the microphone during the club’s victory parade and led the crowd in three offensive chants concerning arch rivals Tottenham. He later apologised for his behaviour.

Wilshere was swiftly charged by the FA for making making and/or inciting comments that brought the game into disrepute.

He endured a similar fate last year, and has been ‘severely warned’ about his future conduct by the FA.

Wilshere plead guilty to the charge after taking over the microphone last month, and has been spoken to by the club for his latest misdemeanour, though the Gunners have opted not to take any further action on the matter.

Arsenal chalked up a record breaking 12th FA Cup win when they beat Aston Villa 4-0 last month, but Wilshere himself only managed to get on the pitch as a late substitute.
