November 21 – Former Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has launched a “multi-million-pound” claim against the club over unpaid wages.
Mendy is claiming “unauthorised deductions from wages” after he was charged with rape and sexual assault in 2021. He was found not guilty on all counts earlier this year.
Mendy, who now plays for French Ligue 1 team Lorient, has been seeking the return of pay he believes he is owed up until the end of his contract in June 2023.
In a statement his lawyers said: “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.”
Mendy won three Premier League titles with City, whom he joined for £52 million in 2017, and was part of France’s World Cup-winning squad in 2018. He last played for City, the current European champions, in August 2021.
