The 23-year-old Wilshere chanted a song about Spurs that contained an expletive and was in the middle of another when Arsenal broke off from the live broadcast on the club's in-house media channel on Sunday.

The studio presenter immediately apologized for any offense caused by Wilshere's remarks. The player could be disciplined by the English Football Association for his remarks.

Wilshere came off the bench in the second half of Arsenal's 4-0 win over Aston Villa in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Arsenal retained the trophy with a record 12th victory in the final.
