- He has now reportedly lodged a claim against City with an Employment Tribunal
- Mendy, who earned around £5m a year, was found not guilty on the last of the charges in July
Following the filing of a “multi-million-pound” lawsuit alleging unpaid wages, Benjamin Mendy has declared war on Manchester City.
Mendy was charged with the October 2020 rape of a 24-year-old lady in his Cheshire home’s bedroom. He was also accused of trying to rape a lady, 29, at his house two years prior.
Man City will cease paying Mendy’s £100,000-per-week salary in September 2021. Mendy has consistently denied both charges and was declared not guilty by the jury at Chester Crown Court earlier this year.
Now, according to Sky Sports, Mendy has opened a ‘multi-million pound claim’ against City for wages owed
The claim is reported to have been lodged with the Employment Tribunal in recent days, with Mendy claiming ‘unauthorised deductions from wages’ while his trial was ongoing
