The football player will appear at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on November 17. The Manchester City and France defender was previously charged with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

These charges relate to four complainants over the age of 16.

The Crown Prosecution Service said it had authorised Cheshire Police to charge Mendy with two additional counts of rape along with Louis Saha Matturie, 40, with two additional counts of rape and one of sexual assault.

27-year-old Mendy was suspended from his position on the Manchester City team in August.

A statement released by the club at the time reads: “The matter is subject to a legal process and the Club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete.”
