Fans blasted Arsenal’s Andrey Arshavin yesterday for demanding an increase in his £80,000-a-week wages – because he thinks he’s paying too much income tax.
New signing Arshavin, 27, has found he takes home less cash here that he did in his native Russia, even though his gross salary is far higher.
It’s because in Russia he was paying 13 per cent tax – and here he is clobbered by the new 50p top rate.
Now, Arshavin has ordered his agent to renegotiate his contract with the Gunners and earn him an increase.
But fans yesterday said the midfielder was displaying “sheer greed.”
