Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger insisted over the weekend that he prioritises the 600 employees at the club getting paid, but it now seems as though it’s 599.
Now based on how it’s a specific Twitter account created for this sole purpose along with the fact that he/she has used Comic Sans as the font for the latter, it’s pretty clear that this could be a joke or a shot at getting some attention.
It’s clearly worked as the English media have picked up on it, and it brings Wenger back into the spotlight as he continues to be heavily scrutinised for his lack of transfer activity this summer.
Arsenal have brought in just one marquee name in Granit Xhaka, with Rob Holding and Takuma Asano also joining the club in separate underwhelming business.
Wenger was evidently fed up of answering the same questions after the draw with Leicester City on Saturday, and responded with this: “What matters to me is when you have a club with 600 employees you have the money to pay them at the end of the month.”
Nevertheless, the pressure remains on the Frenchman’s shoulders to bolster his squad as it won’t just be mock letters that are making the news in the coming weeks particularly if results don’t pick up.
