Setien to sue Barcelona over sacking



taking legal action against Barcelona after only being legally informed about his sacking on Wednesday .
The Catalan club only formalised the exit of Setien this week , over a month after he was relieved of his first- team coaching duties with reports claiming that his lawyers will demand € 4 m from the club in compensation .
Setien ’s statement confirmed that he was only informed by the club of his contractually update on Wednesday , while his coaching staff – who added their names to the official letter – were told they would be “ relocated” in the club .

It was revealed late in August that the Blaugrana had still not sacked Setien through official channels and he had even sent them a burofax – a document with legal standing – to prompt the official paperwork , and it is now set to be decided in a courtroom.
The Blaugrana confirmed Setien ’s sacking earlier this month following Barcelona’ s 8 -2 Champions League defeat against Bayern Munich , which proved to be his final game in charge .
However, it has now emerged that Barcelona have only relieved him of his duties of coaching the team rather than sacking him from the club , meaning that his contract had been ongoing into this week .
The Cantabrian only oversaw 25 matches at the helm with his side winning on 16 occasions , drawing four matches and losing five , and has been replaced with Ronald Koeman.
