Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy has been charged with two additional counts of rape, the Crown Prosecution Service has confirmed.
Mendy now faces six counts of rape and one of sexual assault which relate to four complainants over the age of 16. The France international, of Withinlee Road, Prestbury, Cheshire, will appear at Stockport magistrates’ court on 17 November.
City suspended the 27-year-old left-back in August. The club said in a statement at the time: “The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.”
Louis Saha Matturie, 40 and of Edwin Court, Eccles, has also been charged with two additional counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
