manchester-city
Some men (reportedly eight in number) have filled a lawsuit against Manchester City and Crewe Alexandra in London High Court for what they describe as “very serious psychiatric injuries”.
These men, reportedly in their late 40s or early 50s, claim they were sexually abused by a youth soccer coach Barry Bennell, while he was working as a scout for City and coaching the feeder teams.Two of the men also brought charges against Crewe Alexandra, another English football team where Bennell was supposedly employed as a youth coach after leaving Manchester City in the mid-1980s.

Meanwhile in 2018, Bennell was jailed for 30 years after being convicted of 50 child sexual offenses committed between 1979 and 1991.

However, Manchester City and Crewe Alexandra has refused to accept responsibility for the abuse committed. They argue that the claims have been brought too late to be heard by the court.

The complainants are yet to provide any proof of sexual abuse before the court.
