Former Arsenal and Barcelona midfielder Alex Song has expressed his outrage after he and eight team-mates were sacked by Swiss club FC Sion.

With the outbreak of coronavirus causing financial issues for a number of football clubs globally, Sion president Christian Constantin recently informed his players - with one day's notice - that their wages were to be reduced.



Our captain didn't know anything.



The 32-year-old - whose former Arsenal team-mate Johan Djourou was also dismissed - now looks set to fight against his dismissal and says he will go to Fifa in protest.

Alongside Song, the Swiss players' union also believe the dismissals were unfair and have written to the club in protest.

"You have terminated the employment contracts of the players without notice by letter dated 18 March 2020," they wrote.

We received this document without explanation."
