The rape accusations against Benjamin Mendy, a player for Manchester City, have been adjudicated by a Chester Crown Court.
Six counts of rape against the athlete were dismissed by the court after the jury was unable to agree on a decision on Friday.
The jury was unable to reach a verdict on one allegation of attempted rape and one count of rape during the six months that Mendy’s trial was held in court.
The 28-year-old international from France was charged with eight charges of rape, one act of attempted rape, and a further crime of sexual assault.
Seven women, including young girls and women, brought the football player to court on charges that he had committed the conduct at various times.
Although the jury was unable to reach a verdict on the player’s two rape accusations, the Crown Prosecution Service has promised to pursue a retrial.
