Man City Star Mendy Denied Bail Again Over Rape Accusations 

Manchester City French left-back Benjamin Mendy has again been denied bail ahead of his trial accused of raping two women and sexually assaulting a third.

The 27-year-old who has been in custody for the past seven weeks since his arrest in late August, is on remand at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool, and was not present in person for the bail hearing at Chester crown court.


The press were excluded from the 50-minute hearing before Judge Patrick Thompson, but the result of the bail application was passed on after the hearing by a court official.
Mendy had made two previous bail applications, which had been refused.

The defendant was charged on 26 August with three counts of rape relating to an alleged incident in October 2020 and with the sexual assault of a woman in early January this year. He is also charged with raping a woman in August.

The alleged attacks, on three different women including one under 18, are said to have happened at his home address.

He has played for Manchester City since 2017, when he joined from Monaco for a reported £52m. He was suspended by the club after being charged by police, pending an investigation.

Mendy’s co-accused, Louis Saha Matturie, 40, is charged with four counts of rape. The charges relate to three complainants over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between April 2021 and August 2021. Matturie is also in custody. Both men are scheduled to go on trial on 24 January 2022.

    …how this editorial passed without any comment beats me! This is why we always warn that these lads walking on egg shells and banana peels have to be careful… this was a man rated for as much £52m a couple of seasons ago… now career is on the brink of collapse, life is almost upside down… all for momentary carelessness! Even Cristiano Ronaldo almost had his profile ruined if not for big brands behind him pulling the strings for him… Blackman be careful in western societies but them no go hear… issoright! If them listen to woman case… go Jupiter come back as a guy man wey black get money… them ready for your case pass… to collect all the money back from you wey you don collect through their system with your sweat and blood… it will always end in pain, tears and sorrows! Sorry Mendy…

    Couple is season ago Ballotelli was playing for NICE in France, an underage girl try to trick him Mario realised and report the incident to the police immediately and he cut all ties with the girl , the so called girl didn’t know anything, after a year Mario was playing for Brescia back in Italy and this girl went to report Mario to the police in France unfortunately she was told Mario lawyers already reported this incident a year ago and with all evidences provided by Mario’s lawyers there is no case unless the girl can come up with convincing evidence, and the lady disappeared. My point is, isn’t that obvious the girl is trying to destroy an innocent man, isn’t that evil? shouldn’t she supposed to be arrested and charge for blackmailing? Nothing was heard or said about the girl but hadn’t been Mario did not report the issue and he got arrested . Wow the press will have a carnival with his name . These African players in Europe dating or marrying white should be very careful, one day is enough to lose all you’ve worked for in your whole life. Emmanuel Eboue will tell you his story
