A Twitter user claiming to work in Arsenal’s official store has handed in his resignation following Arsene Wenger’s comments that the club’s lack of transfer activity was in part due to the need to pay their staff.
Wenger has been getting a tough time of it from both the media and fans over his lack of activity in the summer transfer window – just two players have come through the doors at the Emirates – and on Sunday he was (again) forced to defend the lack of a big-money signing.
“I’d spend £300million if I find the player and I had £300million,” the Frenchman said over the weekend. “Do not forget we are a club who has 600 employees who we have to have a responsibility to as well.”
Make that 599 employees…

While we’re skeptical of the authenticity given the Twitter account was created for the sole purpose of posting a letter of resignation, there is no denying it’s not all happy times down at the Emirates.
