Two more rape charges against City player Benjamin Mendy | Football


The 27-year-old Mendy has been in pre-trial detention since the end of August. He was initially charged with four counts of rape and assault, but two charges of rape have been added.

The offenses allegedly took place between October 2020 and August this year. Mendy and a 40-year-old friend of his have been charged by four people over the age of 16, according to British justice. They are due to appear in court on Wednesday. Multiple requests from Mendy to be released on bail were rejected by the judge. “We would like to remind everyone that the criminal case is ongoing, both have the right to a fair trial,” the statement said.

Manchester City paid around 60 million euros four years ago to take over Mendy from AS Monaco. The left back was three times champion of England with City and was part of the French selection that won the 2018 World Cup in Russia. Mendy played ten international matches for France.
