The Gunners missed out on qualifying for the Champions League, after a 4-1 defeat to Chelsea in Baku on Wednesday night.
As a result, their transfer budget will be severely restricted this summer.
According to arseblog, Managing Director Venkatesham was quick to issue a rallying cry after the loss, urging unity in a leaked email sent to everyone at the club.
“I know we are all hurting right now, after a painful and disappointing night.
“We all know that getting our great football club back to where it needs to be won’t be easy, with plenty of highs and lows along the way, and today was one of those lows.
“Let’s keep some perspective. It is a tough moment right now but we have much to be positive about when reflecting on this transitional season and looking forward to the next.
“To achieve our ambition we need to BE TOGETHER in both the good moments and the bad and we know we have the people across our club to do that.
“And finally, a HUGE thank you to you all for your commitment and hard work across what has been a very demanding season. Let’s recharge our batteries over the summer and we will go again hard next season. There are special moments and more finals ahead.
“Let’s keep our heads held high; WE ARE THE ARSENAL,” the email read.
