Domenech to ask for (EURO)2.9 million in severance

Domenech to ask for (EURO)2.9 million in severance

Former France coach Raymond Domenech will ask an employment tribunal for (EURO)2.9 million ($4.1 million) in severance pay after being sacked without compensation by the French football federation.
Domenech's lawyer told Wednesday's L'Equipe newspaper that his client was made "a scapegoat" for France's poor performance at the World Cup, where the team was ousted in the group stage.
Domenech was fired by the federation for making three "grave errors" at the World Cup: failing to handle properly the expulsion of Nicolas Anelka from the squad, the subsequent player strike at a practice session, and his refusal to shake the hand of South Africa coach Carlos Alberto Parreira after France's loss in its final group match.
