Valentino Rossi can celebrate his first victory in 2019, but in court, not on the track. In fact, the Labor Judge of Pesaro, as reported by Il Resto del Carlino newspaper, ruled in favor of Valentino, who had been summoned to court by the former custodians of his villa, Victor Untu and Jigan Zinaida, fired in 2016 after 10 years of working for the rider in his home..
The couple a had requested that Valentino and Graziano Rossi pay 114 thousand Euros in compensation and overtime, which they say they never received.
However, the case ended in favor of the Doctor, and the judge also sentenced the former custodians to payment of the legal fees for the trial, which amounted to 11 thousand Euros. Valentino's lawyers proved that the extra unscheduled works at the villa had not been carried out by the custodians but by specialized firms.
