Benjamin Mendy, a former Manchester City player, was found not guilty of raping one woman and trying to rape another.

The 28-year-old was charged with assaulting a 24-year-old woman in October 2020 at his £4 million mansion in Mottram St Andrew, Cheshire.

Another woman, age 29, who claimed he had previously molested her at his home two years prior, was also accused of being attempted raped by Benjamin Mendy.

For roughly three hours and fifteen minutes, the jury of six men and six women deliberated before reaching a verdict.

Judge Steven Everett said: “Mr Mendy can be discharged from the dock.”

In an earlier trial, the football player, whose contract with Manchester City expired this month, was found not guilty of six counts of rape and one count of sexual assault involving four young girls or teenagers.

A retrial was necessary because the jury was unable to reach a verdict on two counts of attempted and actual rape.
