That decision is wrong in the selection of the club, reports The Athletic. Earlier this season, the club and the squad players reached an agreement to cut salaries by 12.5 percent, provided the rest of the staff could remain with the club. Arsenal therefore does not keep that promise: 55 employees have to leave the field.
The Arsenal players feel ‘betrayed’ by the leadership of the club and plan to raise the issue with the board. According to the club from London, the departure of 55 employees is necessary to invest in the team, to be able to participate in the top of the Premier League next season. For example, the club wants to break open and extend the contract of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang at all costs.
Arsenal players not happy with 55 staff being made redundant. They agreed 12.5% wage cut in April after receiving assurance nobody would lose jobs. Yesterday’s news left squad angry & they plan to raise it with #AFC bosses. With @gunnerblog @TheAthleticUK https://t.co/OWotcinKhh
