Arsène Wenger has accepted Uefa's three-match ban and will be in the stands for Arsenal's next European games.

The Arsenal manager decided not to appeal against the punishment that will prevent him from contacting his bench and players during those matches.

Uefa dished out the suspension and a £33,000 fine for Wenger after his rant at Slovenian referee Damir Skomina when Milan knocked Arsenal out of the Champions League.

The Frenchman was furious at Europe's governing body and promised to appeal but performed a U-turn after discussions at his club.
