Wage structure. by LM
Just read an article on the JustArsenal.com site about Peter Hill-Wood – Greedy Walcott just wants more money….
After reading the whole article and the comments posted below. I started thinking, isn’t Arsene Wenger the highest paid manager in the league (125,000 a week)? And isn’t everyone critizing the board every year for selling Arsenal’s best players, pocketing the money and then not reinvesting anything back into the club?
Also someone had commented, “Just like Mr Gazidis got. 25% rise was it? 2nd highest paid nobody (exec) in football after City’s Gary Cook or whatever he’s called, there’s even a rumour he pockets more than the whole Chelsea executive team.”
So here’s my question, why are the club not willing to increase the players salary? Arsene Wenger will definitely get a higher amount when he renews his contract (assuming he does). The management and the owners also get an increase in salary, bonuses, etc.
Don’t the players then deserve to have their wages increased as well? An even better question, why does the club not have a wage structure for the board and the rest of the management?
I’m not saying pay crazy amounts of money (salary) to a player like Man City, Chelsea, etc do. But the wage structure certainly does need to be increased (if not for all, then certainly for the players who deserve it).
