Benjamin Mendy to seek financial compensation from Manchester City

Former Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy is rumoured to be preparing legal action due to the financial losses he suffered during his investigation. As reported by French media, the player’s international salary was frozen by his club during the investigation. The player is attempting to recover portions of his total wagers that were frozen during his period of suspension with the club.

Benjamin Mendy joined Manchester City in 2017 for a reported fee worth over 50 million Euros, making him the club’s most expensive defender at that time. Despite winning the Premier League in his 1st season with City and being part of France’s World Cup-winning squad, Benjamin Mendy’s life was flipped upside down.

The Frenchman was part of an investigation made against him of rape and sexual assault.

However, in January, Mendy was acquitted of six charges of rape and one count of sexual assault in January. Another trial was held and the judgement from Chester Crown Court cleared him of one more count of rape and attempted rape.

Mendy was suspended by the Premier League and his club Manchester City after being accused of several crimes. When his contract with the club expired, he was likewise released as a free agent.

Mendy has now signed a two-year contract with French club FC Lorient after his contract ended in June.
