Arsenal directors come and go, sometimes going in disgrace and sometimes taking a fat profit with them. To their credit, they do continue to vote year after year not to take dividends on shares they own (which only applies to Stan these days, of course). But some do take more in ‘fees’ and ‘expenses’ than others, not to mention the few who are salaried employees.
Here’s a handy table showing how much the Arsenal Board have taken since 2004. I’ve seen people say Stan Kroenke takes a salary of £1m a year – he doesn’t; it’s not £25k a week, it’s £25k for the year. Ivan Gazidis became the first non-football employee to take a base salary of £1m plus in 2011, though Keith Edelman had broken the £1m barrier with his bonuses taken into consideration.
