Former Man City defender Benjamin Mendy, Joins Ligue 1 club Lorient

By Mitchell Uzorka 

Former Manchester City defender Benjamin Mendy, has signed a two-year deal with Ligue 1 club Lorient.

His new deal came after Mendy was found not guilty of Rape.

Recall that on Friday, Mendy was found not guilty of rape and attempted rape by a jury at Chester Crown Court. Earlier this year the footballer had been found not guilty of sexual offences against a number of women but the jury were unable to reach verdicts on the two charges and there was a retrial.

Mendy, 29, became the Premier League’s most expensive defender when City paid £52m to Monaco for him in 2017.

He won three titles with City and was part of France’s World Cup-winning squad in 2018.

Mendy was released by City when his contract expired at the end of June, last playing for the club in August 2021.
