Former Manchester City player Benjamin Mendy has launched a multi-million pound claim against Manchester City over unpaid wages.
Mendy who now plays for French side Lorient claims that there was unauthorised deduction of wages after being found guilty of rape and sexual assault in 2021 by a jury in retrial at Chester Crown Court.
The former City defender is now seeking the return of pay up until June 2023 which saw the end of his contract with City.
A statement provided to Sky Sports said: “Nick De Marco KC (instructed by Laffer Abogados (Madrid) is acting for the former Manchester City player Benjamin Mendy in a multi-million- pound claim for unauthorised deductions from wages.
“Manchester City FC failed to pay Mr Mendy any wages at all from September 2021, following Mr Mendy being charged with various offence all of which he was subsequently acquitted of, until the end of his contract in June 2023.
“The claim will come before an Employment Tribunal.”
However, amidst all these, Manchester City are yet to comment.
