Manchester City have officially suspended Benjamin Mendy following police charged against him for four counts of rape and one sexual assault. 

The club released a statement confirming the same, and they refused to comment further about the issue since a legal procedure is yet to take place. 

“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.”

“The Crown Prosecution Service has authorised Cheshire Constabulary to charge a man in connection with allegations of sexual assault. Benjamin Mendy, aged 27, has been charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

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

Mendy is currently under police custody, and will appear in a trial, as confirmed by the statement released by the police. “Mendy has been remanded in police custody and is set to appear at Chester magistrates’ court on Friday 27 August.”

The player joined Manchester City in 2017 from Monaco. The English club paid £52 million for the defender at the time, a record fee. He has since won three Premier League titles and two EFL Cups with Manchester City as part of their squad.
