English footballer Jack Grealish was at a party at the home of his Manchester City teammate Benjamin Mendy where two young women were allegedly raped, Chester’s Crown Court has heard.

One of the accusers told the court on Friday that another woman, who claims to have been raped by Mendy’s boyfriend Louis Saha Matturie, alleged that she had sex with Grealish that same night.

Mendy, 28, and Matturie, 41, are on trial on multiple charges of rape and other sex crimes against a number of young women. Both deny all violations.

Grealish, who is in Friday’s 23-man squad for England’s game against Italy, was named during a police interview given by a woman played for the jury.

The woman, 17 at the time, claims she was raped twice by Mendy in August last year on the night of a party at his home in Prestbury, Cheshire. The woman allegedly raped by Matturie told her she had also had sex with Grealish.

Grealish was also named at the trial in late August when he and another teammate, Kyle Walker, were named in a witness statement. The witness told police she saw Grealish and Walker at a party, which was not one of the events related to Mendy and Saha’s trial.

The case continues.
