Sacked Barcelona manager, Quique Setien, has confirmed he would be taking legal action against the club after he was legally informed about his removal 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 €4m from the club in compensation.

Setien’s statement confirmed that he was only informed about his sack by the club on Wednesday, while his coaching staff – who added their names to the official letter – were told they would be “relocated” in the club.
The ex-Real Betis coach was sacked earlier this month following Barcelona’s 8-2 Champions League drubbing by Bayern Munich.
