Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy has been charged with rape and sexual assault, police have said.

The 27-year-old, who also plays for the French national team, is due to appear in court on Friday charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault, a spokesman for Cheshire Police said.

The force said the charges relate to three complainants, over the age of 16, and are alleged to have happened between October last year and this month.

In a statement, Cheshire Constabulary said: “The charges relate to three complainants over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between October 2020 and August 2021.”

Manchester Cty confirmed the 27 year old has been suspended pending an investigation.

The club said in a statement: “The matter is subject to a legal process and the Club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.”Advertisement
