Arsenal players set for showdown with club after 55 staff are sacked

Arsenal’s players feel ‘betrayed’ and want to hold talks with the club’s hierarchy, over the decision to propose 55 redundancies to staff, according to The Athletic.

The North London club on Wednesday announced that financial struggles caused by COVID-19, will result in some of their non-playing staff being let go this month.

The playing squad and manager took a 12.5 per cent pay cut in April, to safeguard the economic future of the club.

However, some of Arsenal’s first-team players are disappointed in the club, as they believed their voluntary wage cut was going to help save jobs.

The Gunners’ highest-earner, Mesut Ozil who is on a £350,00-a-week contract, had refused to take the pay cut due to a lack of assurances of where the money was going.
