Manchester City footballer Benjamin Mendy said ”It’s fine, I have had sex with 10,000 women” after allegedly raping a woman three times in his “locked” bedroom, a court heard.
The 28-year-old French international allegedly lured the woman into his bedroom by taking her phone and looking through naked pictures of her.
Chester Crown Court heard how, in October 2020, Mendy and the woman had been at a bar earlier in the evening. Fellow Manchester footballer Jesse Lingard was also present, the court heard.
They then went back to Mendy’s house in Mottram St Andrew, rural Cheshire
The court heard how the alleged victim said, in her police interview, that he used his fingerprint to open a bedroom door and she followed him in before asking for her phone back.
She claimed he told her to take her clothes off, telling her: “If you just take your clothes off, I just want to have a look at you and I won’t touch you but I just want to see what you look like. I want to see your body. I want to see your tits, your tits are so big.”
The woman, who stripped down to her underwear, said she repeatedly told Mendy she did not want to have sex with him and her friend would be looking for her but he said: “Well the door’s locked anyway.”

While the Mendy case continues one may be tempted to ask whether there is a medal for sleeping with many women and even men as the case may be. Is it just about passion, obsession of lack of self-control? Certainly, a lot of job cum explanations by Psychologists, Sociologists moralists and other professionals are needed.
