Due to non-payment of salaries, Benjamin Mendy has chosen to sue his former team, Manchester City, and has started a legal battle with them.
In addition to the allegations that he attempted to rape another lady two years prior, Mendy is suspected of raping a 24-year-old woman in October of 2020.
Before being found not guilty earlier this year, Mendy consistently refuted these charges. He stated that in September 2021, Manchester City stopped paying him his £100,000 weekly wage.
Sky Sports reports that Mendy has sued City for millions of pounds in an attempt to get paid what he is entitled to.
Mendy accused the City‘s management of making “unauthorized deductions from wages” while his trial was going on, and the case was recently brought to the labor court.
Upon City‘s payment of £52 million to Monaco for Mendy in 2017, he became the costliest defender in the Premier League. His Manchester City contract was initially set to conclude in June of the previous year.
Consequently, Mendy is presently making efforts to recover the unpaid compensation for the period spanning September 2021 to June 2023.
As reported by Sky Sports, Mendy has enlisted the representation of the renowned sports attorney Nick De Marco QC in this legal pursuit.
Mendy, a member of the 2018 FIFA World Cup-winning French national team and a current player for Lorient is grappling with the looming threat of bankruptcy.
