Arsenal has just extended the contracts of four of their first-team players and some fans think it is absolutely the worst decision that they could have made.
The Gunners announced that they have handed a new one-year deal to the unreliable David Luiz, a long-term deal to Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares and an extension to Dani Ceballos’ loan deal.
This news should have brought some encouragement to the fans but judging by their reactions, it is anything but that.
Luiz has been a calamitous presence in the Arsenal defence despite being the most experienced defender at the club.
He marked his return to action last week by giving away two goals and receiving a red card in less than 30 minutes on the pitch.
Fans can hardly believe that the club would hand him and Cedric Soares, who hasn’t even kicked a ball for the Gunners, a new deal and they took to the comment section of the Twitter post announcing the deal to share their opinion.
My day is ruined and I woke up no more than 30 minutes ago.

Rewarding failure with money. Well done.

I’ve really stopped hoping we’re plummeting to mediocrity faster each year
