Arsenal goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny jokingly called for the sacking of chief executive Ivan Gazidis after he refused to hand the squad a bonus following our FA Cup success.
Captain Mikel Arteta is seen calling for the attention of the whole squad and ushering Gazidis to confirm whether or not the club’s staff would receive a bonus at the end of the season.
In typical Gazidis fashion, the South-African lived up to his public perception as a tight executive by pointing to his chest and stating: “My friends, the bonus is right here.”

Amid boos in unison from the first-team squad, the team spirit in the camp was a delight to see this past weekend between players and staff.
Gazidis has been heavily criticised in recent seasons but is slowly starting to rebuild his reputation following a number of successful signings in the transfer market.

As well as the arrivals of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, Gazidis was also instrumental in securing the massive sponsorship deals which have allowed us to concluded such mammoth deals.
Another huge summer awaits Gazidis and his team as we attempt to assemble a squad capable of finally delivering the Premier League title next season.
