- Raul Sanllehi has announced that Arsenal will have to fire 55 of their workers
- This is as a result of Covid-19 which led to Arsenal losing some income
- Arsenal won the 2020 FA Cup title beating Chelsea in the final at Wembley
Premier League giants Arsenal are now ready to render 55 of their workers jobless this summer going by the latest announcement by the club's head of football, Raul Sanllehi.
While announcing the latest development, Arsenal's head of football Sanllehi explained that the Gunners have suffered the consequences of the deadly coronavirus.
The decision to play the remaining games of the 2019/20 Premier League season really affected Arsenal's income according to Sanllehi.
And after the season in which the Gunners won the FA Cup, the club's chiefs decided to reduce their number of staff, but names were not revealed.
“Over recent years we have consistently invested in additional staff to take the club forward, but with the expected reduction of income in mind.
''It is now clear that we must reduce our costs further to ensure we are operating in a sustainable and responsible way, and to enable us to continue to invest in the team.
“Our aim has been to protect the jobs and base salaries of our people for as long as we possibly can. Unfortunately, we have now come to the point where we are proposing 55 redundancies,'' Raul explained.
Meanwhile, Arsenal will be playing in the Europa League next season thanks to their brilliant win over Chelsea in the FA Cup final which gave them the ticket.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how French professional footballer Matteo Guendouzi failed to congratulate his Arsenal teammates after their brilliant FA Cup win over London rivals Chelsea at Wembley.
It was a memorable moment last Saturday for Arsenal stars and their fans beating Chelsea to win their 14th FA Cup title in history.
Before the encounter, Arsenal players knew that only a win will send them to Europe next season after their failure to finish among the top four at the just-concluded season.
Matteo Guendouzi was not picked by Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta for the FA Cup final against Chelsea due to his recent attitude at the club.
