“I worked really, really hard for that money. But he had not paid me. I didn’t know what to do”
A judge ruled the Manchester City player, who earns £200,00-a-week with the Prem champions and his wife Rita made an unauthorised deduction from Catalina Miraflores’s pay packet.
The money was allegedly owed for overtime and expenses incurred by the nanny, who was paid £12-an-hour, for looking after their children after the ace moved from Leicester City to Manchester.
Mahrez, 28, moved to the champions in 2018 as part of a deal reported to be worth £60million.
Employment judge John Sherratt ruled the star sportsman, who also plays for the Algerian national team should have paid their nanny £3,612.
The couple should also have covered expenses incurred by Ms Miraflores and were ordered to pay £150 in damages.
Ms Miraflores, 52, told The Sun: “I worked really, really hard for that money. But he had not paid me. I didn’t know what to do.
“There was never any problem with my work. I worked all of those hours and should be paid.”
Mr Sherratt said in a written judgement: “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 the sum of £150.”
Mahrez has until July 3 to comply with the order.
