Arsenal plan to make 55 staff redundant because of the financial impact of the coronavirus pandemic.

This is despite the Gunners’ first-team players and head coach Mikel Arteta agreeing to a 12.5% pay cut in April.

Arsenal’s executive team also agreed to waive more than a third of their salaries over the next 12 months.

However, the club say they now face “more significant and longer-lasting reductions in our revenue than we all hoped”.

The decision has angered fans of the club who are now questioning why the club is paying players so much money while sending away staff.

Here are some of their tweets.
