Arsene Wenger has criticised his former club Arsenal for axing club mascot Gunnersaurus last month.
The Gunners announced last month that the famous dinosaur will no longer be at the club due to cost-cutting measures after the affects of the coronavirus pandemic.
Mesut Ozil then offered to pay the salary of the mascot, who was in the role for 27 years in North London.
Wenger has now joined Ozil in criticising the decision to part ways with Gunnersaurus.
“The decision was financially unjustifiable. I don’t know what got into them,” The Frenchman told So Foot, according to Daily Star.
"No one can understand it. Everyone who loves Arsenal didn’t take the decision well. I’m part of them.
“They laid off 55 people, which could possibly be explained by a certain reorganisation, a desire for efficiency.
"The mascot cannot be justified by a desire to rebalance finances. It’s incomprehensible."
