The City footballer is now charged with two more counts of rape, according to the Crown Prosecution Service.

The Cheshire police have been authorized by the Crown Prosecution Service to charge

Benjamin Mendy

with two more counts of rape as well as

Louis Saha Matturie

with two counts of rape and one sexual assault.

The 27-year-old and Matturie will go to Stockport Magistrates' Court on November 17. Mendy has been charged with six counts of rape and one sexual assault with four complainants being over 16.

The France international was arrested in August and has been in custody ever since following several bail applications refused by judges.

The statement from police added:

"Cheshire Constabulary and the Crown Prosecution Service would like to remind everyone that criminal proceedings against Matturie and Mendy are live and that they have a right to a fair trial."

Mendy, who is now at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool, will appear in court on Wednesday. His initial charge was three counts of rape regarding an incident in October 2020 and an assault that occurred in January 2021.

He has featured for

Manchester City

since 2017, when he made a move away from

Monaco

on a deal worth £52m. When the police charged him, he got suspended by the club.

The duo will go on trial on January 24, 2022.
