Former Hamburg coach Mirko Slomka launches suit against club

Slomka was released from his duties just three games into the new season.

Former Hamburg coach Mirko Slomka has filed a suit against his old club and wants 1.4 million euros in compensation, his lawyer has confirmed.

Earlier this month, Slomka was sacked by Hamburg after only seven months in charge at the struggling Bundesliga club.

During the 47-year-old's reign, the Dinosaurs avoided the drop into the second league through the away-goal rule after two draws in the relegation playoffs against Greuther Furth.

After collecting just one point and scoring no goals three games into the 2014-15 season, Hamburg released Slomka from his duties on Sept. 15, with the coach receiving notice in writing the next day, Hamburger Abendblatt reports.

Together with his lawyer Horst Kletke, Slomka now seeks an arbitration process at the German Football Association [DFB], the lawyer confirmed to the Hamburg daily paper. A conciliation hearing has not been requested yet.

According to the paper, Slomka -- who was under contract until 2016 -- had a clause in his contract which guaranteed him half of his basic salary plus bonuses, adding up to a minimum of 1.4 million euros.

Slomka's lawyer Kletke only recently contended successfully for an 800,000 euro compensation deal for former Hamburg sporting director Oliver Kreuzer, who was sacked by Hamburg ahead of the new season.

The case was settled out of court, which Hamburger Abendblatt believes is could happen in the Slomka case.
