Mendy has filed a claim with the Employment Tribunal against Man City over unpaid wages.
Benjamin Mendy has decided to sue Manchester city with a “multi-million-pound” claim over unpaid wages. It’s confirmed by sports lawyer Nick De Marco KC.
Mendy was found not guilty of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault against five women following a six-month trial. However, the jury were unable to reach verdicts on one count of rape and one count of attempted rape.
The 29-year-old was cleared of those charges by a new jury, and he was allowed to resume his football career. The Frenchman was initially suspended by club in 2021 and the defender was then officially released by Man City.

The Statement reads, “Nick De Marco KC 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.”
The 29-year-old defender joined Man City from Monaco for a reported £52m in the summer of 2017, becoming the Premier League’s most expensive defender.
