Manchester City defender, Benjamin Mendy, has been charged with two additional counts of rape.
The Crown Prosecution Service said in a statement on Tuesday that it had authorised Cheshire police to charge Mendy with two additional counts of rape and Louis Saha Matturie, 40, with two additional counts of rape and one count of sexual assault.
Mendy, of Withinlee Road, Prestbury, Cheshire, and Matturie, of Edwin Court, Eccles, will appear at Stockport Magistrates’ Court on November 17, 2021.
The 27-year-old now faces six counts of rape and one of sexual assault which relates to four complainants over the age of 16.
Mendy was refused bail in October ahead of his trial for rape and sexual assault.
Mendy, who is being held on remand at HMP Altcourse in Liverpool, was denied bail by a judge at Chester Crown Court.
The French footballer has since been suspended by Man City.
