Benjamin Mendy launches multi-million-pound lawsuit against Manchester City 

Manchester City owes former player Benjamin Mendy almost ten million pounds in unpaid pay.

Former Manchester City fullback Benjamin Mendy is suing his former club for millions of dollars, claiming he was wrongfully underpaid. Mendy, who had previously been cleared of rape and sexual assault, brought the matter to the Employment Tribunal. In September 2021, he was suspended by City and his payments were withheld due to charges. He was remanded for five months before his trial began in August 2022, and he was acquitted by June 2023.

In an interview with Sky Sports, Mendy’s agent, Nick De Marco, alleged that Manchester City stopped paying his salary from September 2021 until his contract ended in June 2023. Nick alleged that City owes Mendy more than ten million dollars in salaries till 2023.

By 2024, the claim will be considered by an Employment Tribunal. After being approached by many media outlets, Manchester City authorities declined to comment. French international Benjamin Mendy became the Premier League‘s most expensive defender in 2017, with Manchester City paying a staggering 52 million to purchase him from Monaco. Mendy left City in August 2021 after winning three Premier League championships and being a member of France’s World Cup-winning team in 2018. He joined Ligue 1 club Lorient in July 2023 after being cleared by the judiciary.

Benjamin Mendy, the former Manchester City left-back, signed a two-year contract with Ligue 1 club Lorient this season, only days after being cleared of rape and sexual assault. The left-back, whose contract with City expired in the summer, may be unable to return to his previous life.

Mendy was arrested and held in jail for five months before coming to trial. The charges, which were followed by arrests, harmed his reputation. Following his acquittal, other players, notably Memphis Depay of the Netherlands and Vinicius Jr. of Real Madrid, expressed their support for Benjamin on social media.
