Arsenal announced yesterday that they will be making 55 staff redundant due to the Covid 19 pandemic. These members of staff are from a number of different departments and none of them make anywhere near the sums of money that the players are being paid. 

The owners of Arsenal, KSE (formally Stan Kroenke's company), whom has a net worth of 10 billion cannot afford to pay his players. However the club itself is capable of paying in excess of £300,000 per week to keep players such as Pierre Emerick Aubameyang and Mesut Ozil on the books. The latter has not started a game or been on the bench since the 7th March but has still been collecting a paycheck.

The club has said that nothing has changed in terms of their recruitment or transfer plans for the summer and yet the redundancies to this staff will have a great effect on their financial position. How can the club justify making people redundant in the same week that they offer someone another £100,000 a week to stay. 

Whether you care about football or not, this is a prime example of where the rich and the poor are split. Stan Kroenke who owns billions of pounds worth of sporting teams (Colorado rapids, Los angeles rams, Colorado avalanche to name a few) is not able to keep hold of 55 members of support staff. In my opinion this is an embarrassment.
