Court Orders Man City’s Mahrez, Wife To Pay Former Nanny


Algerian and Manchester City star, Riyad Mahrez and his wife, Rita, have been ordered to pay more than £3,600 in unpaid wages to their children’s former nanny.

In a ruling by Judge, John Sherratt, Mahrez and his wife “made an unauthorised deduction” from the wages of nanny, Catalina Miraflores.

The judge also ordered them to pay an extra £150 in damages after they “failed to pay certain expenses”.

The Sun reports that Miraflores was hired in 2018 by the footballer – who earns around £200,000 a week – to look after his two daughters. 

In a written ruling, Sherratt said: “The respondents have made an unauthorised deduction from the claimant’s wages and are ordered to pay the claimant the net sum of £3,612.

“The respondents, in breach of contract, have failed to pay certain expenses to the claimant and are ordered to pay damages to the claimant in the sum of £150.”

A separate claim of unfair dismissal by Miraflores was rejected by the tribunal on the grounds that she lacked two years’ qualifying service.

In a chat with the Sun, Miraflores said: “I worked really, really hard for that money.”
