Arsenal Fans Are Furious as Chief Exec Ivan Gazidis Pockets £1 Million Bonus

Arsenal chief executive Ivan Gazidis has been given a £1 million bonus for the last year despite the Gunners failing to win any trophies – and the club’s supporters are far from happy.

According to the Daily Mail, the windfall makes Gazidis the second-highest paid football executive in the world behind Manchester United’s Ed Woodward, with his annual salary at almost £2.7 million.

The massive fee looks even more remarkable when you consider Arsenal’s lack of success on the pitch, with the club waiting for their first league title since 2004.

Last season, Arsenal finished second in the Premier League, were knocked out of the League Cup in the fourth round, were eliminated from the Champions League in the round of 16 and failed to make it past the last eight in the FA Cup.

Does that sound worthy of a big bonus to you? This lot don’t seem to think so:

What do you think? Should fans be this unhappy? Or are wages like this just a fact of big business in the modern world?
