Mendy, of Withinlee Road, Prestbury, has been remanded in custody ahead of his court appearance.

The left-back has played for Manchester City since 2017, when he joined from Monaco for a reported £52 million.




A police spokesman said: “Cheshire Constabulary and the Crown Prosecution Service would like to remind everyone that criminal proceedings against Mendy are live and that he has a right to a fair trial.”

In a statement, Manchester City said: “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.”
