Míchel to sue Marseille over non-payment of contract

Former Real Madrid midfielder Míchel is suing Olympique Marseille over his dismissal from the Ligue 1 club, he has confirmed in an interview with Spanish news outlet El Confidencial. Míchel was sacked by Marseille on April 19 after a series of run-ins with the club’s president.

"I have always behaved correctly"

This has been the worst experience I have had during my career as a coach. What angers me the most is that the president said he had dispensed with my services because of bad behavior. The club’s owner [Margarita Louis-Dreyfus] and the staff, with whom I get on famously, can testify to my conduct on and off the pitch being always correct. Without wishing to sound presumptuous, I have never behaved in an incorrect way at any club as a player or a manager. Furthermore, as the president sacked me without paying the full amount of my contract, I have had to file a lawsuit.”
