Soccer: Benjamin Mendy is suing Manchester City over unpaid wages

# Soccer: Former Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has filed a multi-million-rand claim with the Employment Tribunal over unauthorised wage deductions. He was charged with rape and sexual assault in 2021, but in July this year, the 29-year-old was found not guilty by a jury in a retrial at Chester Crown Court in England. It is alleged that Manchester City stopped paying Mendy in September 2021, after he was initially charged. The defender is seeking the return of pay he is owed up until the end of his contract, which ended in June.
