Benjamin Mendy Found Not Guilty Of 7 Of The 9 Charges Against Him.

The Manchester City defender has been cleared of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

Benjamin Mendy has been found not guilty of seven of the nine charges against him.

The Manchester City defender has been cleared of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault after a trial which began in August 2022.

However, Sky Sports reports that after 14 days of deliberation at Chester Crown Court, the jury has been unable to reach verdicts on two other charges against Mendy - one count of rape, involving a woman aged 24 in October 2020, and one count of attempted rape, involving a woman aged 29 in October 2018.

Mendy will face a retrial in June over the two charges - alleged rape and alleged attempted rape - that the jury could not decide on.

Mendy's co-accused, Louis Saha Matturie, has been found not guilty of three charges. He faces a possible retrial on six charges.

Both men denied the charges and said all the sexual activity was consensual.
