Arsenal’s front office have agreed to slash their own wages as the players continue to refuse pay-cuts.
The Sun says execs have agreed to slash their own wages by over a third for the next year in a bid to stop the impending financial ruin.

Board members have agreed to slash their own wages by more than a third in order to help keep the club afloat during the coronavirus pandemic.
In a long update on their club website, Arsenal revealed a three-pronged plan.
– Executives would take a pay-cut of more than a third for the next year.
– They would continue to pay all casual staff until at least May.
– “Productive talks” with players would continue over whether or not to cut their salary.
