Arsenal are entering a court battle with Capstone Sports Management after a reported bust up over unsliced bread, reports the Daily Mail.

The Gunners are attempting to sue the corporation for £375,000, launching a High Court writ after they stopped paying for their executive seats when staff at the Emirates refused to slice some bread for the company's guests.

The same staff, reportedly from Box 48, were also reprimanded after ordering in their own pack lunches in December 2011.

Capstone originally invested £465,000 to secure a box at the Emirates Stadium in 2016 due to be paid off in instalments.

But they sent a letter to Arsenal in 2012 stating they would no longer pay after claiming that the club had failed to keep their promise to take proper action over the packed lunch incident.

The failure to cut the bread was seemingly the final straw.

The company, which was founded in 2007 by Samuel Okoronkwo, is claiming that the service was compromised by the failure to react to Capstone's complaints.

An Arsenal spokesperson refused to comment to the Daily Mail whilst court proceedings are ongoing.

Boxes at the world-class Emirates Stadium starting from £86,400 and promise '‘the ultimate VIP hospitality experience… watching football being played the Arsenal way".
