LONDON — Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere has been charged with misconduct after his foul-mouthed outburst toward rival club Tottenham during his team's FA Cup victory celebrations.

Wilshere took to the microphone during Arsenal's open-top bus parade in London on Sunday and chanted a song about Spurs that contained an expletive. He was in the middle of another expletive-filled song when Arsenal broke off from the live broadcast on the club's in-house media channel.

The English Football Association says on Wednesday that Wilshere has been charged because his conduct "was improper and/or brought the game into disrepute."

Wilshere has until June 10 to respond to the charge.

Arsenal beat Aston Villa 4-0 to retain the FA Cup on Saturday. Wilshere came off the bench in the second half.
