All of the offences were alleged to be committed at his Cheshire residence.

The accused is being charged with three rapes of a woman in October 2012.

He is accused of raping a second victim while on August police bail.

A sexual assault was also alleged against the footballer in January 2021.

These offences are alleged to have occurred in Macclesfield and Cheshire on August 23rd and 24th, respectively. 

Christopher Stables was his attorney at the previous hearing and stated that he strongly denied these allegations.

Premier League champions City spent a reported £49.2million signing Mendy from French side Monaco in 2017.

He earns £90,000 a week and lives in a £5million mansion in Prestbury, an upmarket village near Manchester popular with fellow players.

He was part the winning France World Cup squad of 2018, but did no play in final. After signing from Monaco in 2017, he made 75 appearances with Man City.

Mendy participated in Man City’s games against Leicester City (Turkey Hotspur) and Tottenham Hotspur, but was left on the bench when they played against Norwich City.

He was then charged with the next game against Arsenal.

Pep Guardiola of City revealed Mendy’s injury last September.

After he was arrested, the City suspended his left-back.

The club released a statement saying that Benjamin Mendy was suspended while an investigation is conducted.

“The matter is currently under legal review and club members are unable to comment on it until this process has been completed.”
