    Manchester City Defender Benjamin Mendy has been denied bail this morning after the 27-year-old was charged with four counts of rape relating to three women.

    The French defender was additionally charged with one count of sexual assault.

    The charges relate to four complainants over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between October 2020 and August 2021. 

    Mr Mendy is currently being held at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool whilst he awaits his next appearance at Chester Crown Court on the 10th September.

    City has suspended the player indefinitely pending the outcome of the case against him.

    A spokesperson for the club said:

    Quote

     

    'Manchester City can confirm that, following his being charged by police, Benjamin Mendy has been suspended pending an investigation.

    'The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.'

     

     

    Reports suggest that the French International was subject to a misunderstanding in which he believed he would be housed in a VIP area of the prison, apparently becoming confused over the acronyms VIP and VP, believing he was to be given special privilege when in fact he was destined for the 'vulnerable persons' wing of the Category-B prison, for his own safety.
