Manchester City Footballer Benjamin Mendy Arrested
It has been further stated by the club, this is a legal process and at this point in time, the club cannot state much more about the situation until the legal process is going to get completed, until then the club is not going to be making any kind of statement about the case. It has been stated by a police spokesperson, Crown prosecution service, and Cheshire Constabulary service is giving a reminder to everyone that the proceeding which is directed as criminal activity against Mendy is on its course and he has the right to have a fair trial.
It seems like there are going to be no comments from the club or his teammates about the situation as this is a legal matter now and anything which the club or the players say in these times can be used in favor or against them so it is pretty evident, the club and the players are not going to be uttering a word. if Mendy has truly done this, then he needs to be punished by the law authorities but this should happen after he goes on through hi fair trial which can turn out to be completely different as to what he is being stated as and is being accused of.
