Confirmed! Man City Suspend Star After Police Charge

Manchester City have announced that they have suspended Benjamin Mendy after he was charged by the police.

The Citizens confirmed the French full-back was charged by the Police on Thursday, but they did not reveal why.

Statement:

Manchester City can confirm that following his being charged by police today, 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.

While the Citizens did not reveal the charge, reports in England have claimed that the 27-year-old has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

The Sun reported that the Cheshire Constabulary Police announced that Mendy has been charged with alleged sex actions against three women between October 2020 and August 2021.

"The CPS has authorised Cheshire Constabulary to charge Benjamin Mendy, aged 27, with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault," the statement read, as per the Sun.

"The offences are alleged to have taken place in Cheshire between October 2020 and August 2021 and relate to three complainants over the age of 16.

"Mendy has been remanded in police custody and will appear before Chester Magistrates’ Court on Friday 27 August 2021.

"Cheshire Constabulary and the Crown Prosecution Service would like to remind everyone that criminal proceedings against Mendy are active and that he has a right to a fair trial.

"It is extremely important that there should be no reporting, commentary or sharing of information online which could in any way prejudice these proceedings."
