The French International is on trial accused of raping and sexually assaulting a total of six different women on five different occasions at his home in Mottram St Andrew between October 2018 and August last year.Mendy denies seven counts of rape, one count of attempted rape and one count of sexual assault.Chester Crown Court previously heard Mendy went clubbing “two or three times a week” and regularly invited people back to his mansion for after parties.

Giving evidence today, Marc Boixasa, former head of first team operations at the Premier League side, said Mendy was “the nicest person he had met in football” but admitted he was “not the perfect professional.”Jurors heard Mendy became injured during his first season with the club and was sent to Barcelona for treatment.
