Benjamin Mendy Found Not Guilty of Rape

A jury at Chester Crown Court where Benjamin Mendy’s case was tried had declared the former Manchester City player not guilty of rape and attempted rape.

In October 2020, the 28-year-old World Cup winner was cleared unanimously of one count of rape, and one count of attempted rape in October 2018.

The French man whose contract expired with Manchester City this summer, was at his original trial which ended in January cleared of a further eight charges.

Mendy joined City in 2017 with a transfer fee of £56m—the most ever paid for a Premier League defender at the time.

Police investigations began on the player almost three years ago when the player was accused of carrying out sex attacks on two women at his £4m mansion.
