Acquittal and Legal Representation
In January, the footballer was acquitted of one charge of sexual assault and six counts of rape against five women.
Unpaid Wages and Neglect
Mendy, who currently represents French Ligue 1 club Lorient, has been pursuing the reimbursement of compensation that he believes he was entitled to from the time of his contract’s termination in June 2023.
“Nick De Marco KC (represented by Laffer Abogados (Madrid)) is acting on behalf of former Manchester City player Benjamin Mendy in a multimillion-pound claim for unauthorised wage deductions,” he said in a statement.
“From September 2021, when he was charged with multiple offences, all of which were subsequently abandoned. Until the conclusion of his contract in June 2023, Manchester City FC neglected to remunerate Mr. Mendy with any wages.”
The matter will be presented to an Employment Tribunal.
The lodged claim has not yet elicited a response from Manchester City.
Mendy also represented the club in three Premier League championships and was a member of France’s 2018 World Cup-winning squad. He was a City player until August 2021.
