Manchester City have suspended left back Benjamin Mendy pending an investigation, after the French international was charged by the police with four counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.

"The charges relate to three complainants over the age of 16 and are alleged to have taken place between October 2020 and August 2021," Cheshire Constabulary said in a statement on Thursday.

The police added Mendy has been remanded in police custody and is set to appear at Chester Magistrates' Court on Friday.

"The matter is subject to a legal process and the club is therefore unable to make further comment until that process is complete," City said in a statement.
