I see Ozil has offered to pay the wages for the mascot Arsenal made redundant. 

 

Fair play to him, especially with his current situation, good to see not everyone's a ball sniffer involved at the top level

So Ozil gets his absolutely ridiculous wage from Arsenal 

 

Arsenal sack the mascot and others 

 

Ozil offers to pay for the mascot?

 

♻️ 💷

I presume he got abuse beforehand too - encouraging him (shouting at him) to do it.

Absolutely.  There should be not one single lay off or furlough at any Premier League teams.

Why would a club like Arsenal give themselves such bad PR and optics over a mascot.

 

THIS x 1000000000000000

 

On transfer deadline day, when they're throwing tens of millions of pounds around and offering wages that to players for 1 week that would likely pay for the mascot until the bloke dies and beyond.  It's absolutely baffling.

At £350,000 a week it's quite possible that a 50 year old man will not have earnt that in his entire life in the real world .

Man has wages of £1500 a year in 1975 (a decent wage at the time). Wages rise slightly every year until he retires 40 years later on £20,000 a year.  Cant' be bothered to do the exact maths but he won't have earned £350,000 in his entire working life.  And he will have worked 40 hours a week, maybe more, and paid his own gym fees !

The mascot doesn’t have a role in todays game until the stadium re-opens. He also doubles up as the match day PR man, why should Arsenal pay him for a job he’s not required for?
 

From what I can understand, he’s been made aware his job isn’t required at the moment but, when he is required, his job is still there. 
 

Ozil has offered 0.2% of his annual salary to keep him employed. If he’d have done so without involving the press, fair play. He’s done it as a dig.

Well they are still paying Ozil £350,000 a week and it doesn't look like he is required to do his job at the moment either!

 

Given this guy has probably worked for them for a very average wage comparably for many years, surely they could have kept him on for a few months until fans are back in the stadium.

With a bit of training he could probably do some online stuff for the younger fans at the moment as well, but no, best to bin him off for a while. Did they stop paying players when none of them were required to do their job for 3 months of lock down?

So Ozil who's paying 0.2% out of his own pocket gets a dig, but the club are correct to do it, when it would presumably be 0.001% of their overall wage bill?
