Benjamin Mendy has been left ruined figҺting to clear his name
The former Man City star ended up figҺting bankruptcy after his 2020 arrest for rɑрe
His contract dealed him a base pay of £100,000 per week and bonuses worth up to an additional $170,000.
But after his 2020 rɑрe arrest, he found himself figҺting bankruptcy rather than collecting £31.2 million.
And after being pursued for unpaid taxes, he was compelled to shut down his image rights company.
After being charged in 2021, the football player suffered a severe financial setback because City stopped paying him the following month.
He had already pocketed £5million but his fast-spending lifestyle quickly caught up with him.
He also lost heavily in sales of six-bed mansion The Spinney in Prestbury, Cheshire, motors including a Lamborghini and expensive watches.
Mendy last played for Man City on August 15, 2021, during their 1-0 defeat to Tottenham at the start of last season.
But the Premier League champions released him when his contract expired last month.
