A football club chairman is suing his own divorce lawyers claiming they failed to warn him that promotion to the Premier League would result in an extra £2.25million pay off to his ex-wife. Huw Jenkins OBE, 56, the former Swansea City boss, claims he was told by solicitors that his finances were "not stable enough" to reach a financial settlement with his wife Sian, 50, while the club was in the lower league.
