Mendy will remain in jail and will face trials  for four rapes

Manchester City's French winger Benjamin Mendy will remain in prison until at least January 24, the date on which he will be tried for four rapes and one sexual assault. 
This was announced this Friday by a British judge at a hearing in Chester, northern England. At the moment, Mendy, who appeared in court, is in the Altcourse prison, north of Liverpool.

Another hearing is scheduled for November 15, at which the left-back's attorney, Eleanor Laws, could ask for the charges to be dropped. Mendy has been in preventive detention since August. He is charged with three rapes in October 2020 and one in August 2021, at his home in Prestbury, Cheshire. Also, from a sexual assault in January 2021, also at his home. At the hearing on Thursday, he only spoke to confirm his identity.

In 2017, City invested around €60 million in the signing of Mendy, 27, a former player from Marseille, Monaco, and Le Havre.

Injuries have marked the stage of the French world champion in the 'citizen' team. Since Mendy's arrest was ordered on August 27, the English club suspended the full-back.
